    Ive had this D Capensis for some time now. Got thru someone on these fourms. Nows theres a new leaf thats growing out that looks like it has several little bulbs at the end of it and growing straight up above everything else. Is this the start of a budding or podding, or what ever it means to flower and make seeds?
    Quit reading my mind!

    Yes, this is a flower stalk. Just wait for it to do its thing. It will self pollinate and you will have seeds all over the place!

    Or, if you want even more seed, rub the flower with your finger [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Does anybody have a pic of a capensis, at the VERY beginning of stalk development? Mine is showing something fuzzy, different looking than the normal leaves, emanating from the center.

    Does sound the beginning of a flower stalk. Cape sundew will flower when ever is warm enough. Unless you want seedlings it normal to cut the flower stalks off. Two reasons, first is that a Cape will shrink due to the energy it puts into flowering. The second is of course is you end up to your eyeball in Capes.

    Really? Cool whip! Unless you are referring to Los freddy. In that case, never mind.

    I'm just looking for seeds as trade bait. Goes along with the D. spatulata that everybody has and no one wants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
