    If it is grown outdoors than it will catch its own prey. If it is grown indoors, the cape sundew can be fed rehydrated blood worms or ants etc. that can be caught outdoors. Once a week/month feeding should do. To repot, just take the plant out of the pot without damaging its roots. Replant the whole plant, soil and all, in a larger pot(around 4in-6in should do). The medium should be sandeat 1:1, peat:sanderlite 2:1:1, or sphagnumerlite 1:1 etc. Use only rain, distilled, RO, deionized water for the plant.

    also remember that a high humidity level must be maintained to keep dew from drying up,best suggestion is a terrarium enviroment.or some kind of lid to cover it so that it gets some humidity. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
