    D. capensis really doesnt need a whole lot of humidity but it thrives in LOTS and LOTS of light and constantly moist soil. ive hit as low as 30% and it doesnt phase capensis one bit but insificiant light will make a scraggly looking plant. i think thats why most dont think much of the species. its a common easy to get species so they pay it no special attention and give it less than ideal light, saving the best positions for other species pushing D. capensis to some lonely back corner. but with a lil attention this species is one of the showyest of the Drosera and will get someones attention. Here is a pic of my "Typical" and D. 'Albino' before they got hit with a cold draft. IMHO these are a couple of really well grown capensis although ive seen pics of other members plants that really put mine to shame. can you tell this is one of my favorite species?

    Editor's comments: Single quotes on the cultivar name D. 'Albino' since it is actually a valid cultivar name.

    One capensis flower in 15 years? Weird! How were you growing it? It must be that Nebraska vortex (or whatever Dorothy and Toto encountered).

    basically the top of the pots are 12-14 inches from 4-four foot 32 watt flourecent lights on a 13 hour day cycle. they sit in a tray of water that is almost constantly 1 inch deep. i suppose the top of the higher leaves are with in 6 inches of the lights. most flower stalks grow up between the lights. as fare as capensis go they are average sized but seem more compact than most i have seen which is where i figure that most ppl dont give them enough light. theya re in 3.5 inch pots and there is only 2 or maybe 3 individual plants in each pot.

    Hahaha...that was Kansas, Bob, not that you would know the difference if you were driving through either state, lol.
    I think it was in 10 gallon tanks, 4" pots with LFS and the tray method. D. spatulata , D. dielsieana ect. flowered profusely.
    It was a large narrow -leaf variety that Sean Samia gave me , too. It flowered very soon after I got it, and it was probably planning it before it realized it was caught in the "Nebraska Vortex."

    Cheers,

    Joe

    thanks, i wish i would have paid attention to where thay are sitting more. they got hit with a cold draft on one of our -40 days when i went out the back door and they really didnt appreciate it and frost bit some of the leaves. they are growing well again now though. that photo is taken about 4 days before they got blasted.

    That's right! Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma ... whatever. Anything east of the Sierra is back east.
