    The title basically says it, my Drosera capensis has been flowering for about a week now, but none of the flowers have opened up all the way. They will open up far enough for me to see inside, but the petals won't spread out. It's in my windowsill getting good sunlight. Anything I can do differently to help it open up?

    That's what I figured for my work days, but I've been here all day today, and it hasn't opened up all the way either.

    Well that's good anyway, but I was hoping for a few nice pictures too. It still have quite a few to go yet though, so hopefully one of them will open up. I noticed that the sun doesn't start hitting it directly until about 12:00. I wonder if that would make a difference. I'll try putting it in the sun for the morning too, and then switching it when I take my lunch break. We'll see if that works!

    Yes switching it up might help.

    I had that with my D. rotundifolia. It was probably open for about a half hour or so. But I managed to get some nice pictures from it. My D. spatulata never opened up. I'm not sure why, they had the same conditions as the D. rotundifolia. Hopefully the D. capensis will open up for me when it gets some more sun.
