    Hay Hellz here,
    i am always looking at peoples D. Capensis, cuz it is one of my fav dews, and they always seem sooooo huge
    how to yal grow em to get that big?
    also, they were 2 types of D. Capensis ive never heard about,
    D. capensis rubra
    D. capensis "Giant form"
    i have traded for the latter, and am awaiting its arrival, but the D. Capensis rubra is an enigma to me
    how come ive never heard of these forms of D. Capensis?
    and does the type of D. Capensis affect its size? (ex: does the alba form grow naturaly smaller than, lets say, typical form?)
    thanks in advanced

    I have a stem forming variety and a red variety. The red has always been much larger than the stem former.

    Oh look! 666 posts! I'll stop posting for a while, lol.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Couldn't be Drosera capensis alba since that is not a valid name. It could be Drosera 'Albino' which is a registered cultivar derived from Drosera capensis.

    Drosera capensis is a species that can be quite variable, as are many other species, and just as with other species, these variations are sometimes not given much attention by taxonomists. We horticulturists don't need to wait for taxonomists to notice variation in our favorite plants, we have the privilege and opportunity to register these variations of note as cultivars. Just a few have already been registered from the species, Drosera capensis. See: CP Database

    Drosera 'Albino' and Drosera 'Narrow Leaf' are the only two currently found in the CP Database.

    good light, really good light. genetics ofcourse play some part but the best looking and largest plants i have seen are full sun or have a really good artificial light source
