    Depends on how you grow them. Mine are almost continuously flowering. Before one flower stalk is finished another begins growing. Sometimes there are three or more going on the same plant, each flower stalk of different ages and stages of growth.

    Is flowering related to light or humidity conditions? I'd like to keep mine flowering if possible, as I really don't have too many plants that flower reliably; it would be nice to have something blooming year-round.

    For my conditions I believe that consistent feeding with sprinklings of freeze-dried bloodworms in addition to plenty of light for extended periods each day but no lack of moisture, humidity, warm temperatures, and other normally suitable environmental factors commonly recognized as necessary for successful cultivation of Drosera capensis.

    A month ago I moved mine to a new setup with much better lighting. It's beginning to color up quite nicely now, gets plenty of food and humidity, and has recently started to put out stolons, so I suspect it's only a matter of time before I see flowers. However, I have my lights on a 10-hour-day photoperiod for the winter - will this inhibit flowering? When you say, "extended periods each day" do you mean longer-than-natural photoperiods or just high light levels while the sun is up?
    Thanks,
    ~Joe

    All my CP are grown under lights and the timer is set for 15 hours/day.

    The frequent flowering and subsequent seed production can be a bit annoying though the flowers do have their charm, the excess seed can be less than charming.

    No offense, but you could grow these things in a mix of old cans and coffee grounds and they'd thrive [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    in the summer, i had like 5 flower stalk come up and set seed.
    my D. capensis were in a bog garden, and caught lots of bugs, along with have a nice amount of light.
    I think with sundews, its about how much light they get, but humidity is a laarge factor to
    just my thoughts

    PS i dont think D. capensis makes Stolons

    I don't have any capensis until I sow some seed, but I had only one flower-ever. I had it continously for 15 years or so. I have no explanation for that. Maybe lack of feeding?

    Cheers,

    Joe
