    You definitely want to avoid freezing with D. capensis. Mature plants may survive it, but they will die back to the ground. It will probably stay healthier if kept indoors though, and is more tolerant of lower light levels than most sundews. One consideration with this species though is that the roots get very very long. I probably have a foot length of several different roots snaking around the water tray of my D. capensis.

    There are several dealers of D. capensis online that sell what they call 'giant form's. I have seen several versions. Or you could post a 'wanted to buy' ad on TF's sales forum.

    Thanks for all the help. I think I will get a giant capensis and maybe try venusta later on.
