    I have had this one drosera (capensis) id'd for me before by the forums, but I need it again as I was too lazy to label it the first time. I have d. alba, but the plant has a hint of pink to it. It isn't colorless by any means but it is a far cry from a d. capensis typical. Plantakiss helped me out with it before, so anyone that can help, thanks

    Drosera capensis 'alba' (i assume thats your plant?) can be a bit pink in the tenticles at time.

    The 'alba' of D. capensis 'alba' refers to the white flowers rather than the plant itself. It will attain a pinkish colouration to the glands when grown in good light.

    D.cap 'albino'? Then that's not the right name (I don't know how I came to know of capensis, though, I live in a place where no one can grow it...) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Might put it it a freezer though...at what temps does D.capensis grow at? I know this is just about the newbiest question one can ask, but I've never grown it b4 (yes I have mistakenly, but it 'DIED') after trying to flower.
