    That's how my plant looked when I first gotten it.

    BTW, the correct name is D. capensis 'Albino'

    I have seen some labeled as "albino" but I use "alba", as a few more people seem to use that.

    When in doubt, check the CP Database at http://www.omnisterra.com/bot/cp_home.cgi

    The result shows:

    N: $[Drosera ' Albino ' {Borret & Farrow}]
    P: J.Carniv.Pl.Soc. Autumn: (1989)S: =[Drosera capensis {L.}]HC: Registered 10. 11. 1998 (JS)B: R.Borret, Oxford; N.Farrow, Felixstowe, Suffolk, early 1988Nominant: R.Borret & N.FarrowDescription: J.Carniv.Pl.Soc. Autumn: (1989)


    Note the alba entry below shows nom. nud. or "nomen nudum" (literally "naked name" no description and/or no type), which means it is invalid.

    N: ~[Drosera capensis {L.} var.alba {D'Amato}]nom.nud.
    P: Savage Garden:129 (1998)S: =[Drosera capensis {L.}]


    The "alba" name was commonly used in the trading circle, but it is not accepted by the ICPS and the scientific community. It does no't help when many nurseries still sell plants with this bogus name.

    Hello,

    It takes roughly a year, sometimes even less, to have a flowering plant of this species. It's one of the fastest growing Drosera and can become a weed, if you don't cut the flowers off. I've already made this experience about 2 years ago. Mine is in flower, so i can maybe post a picture in the next days of the white flower, if anybody is interested in.

    Christian
