This will not be possible. D. capensis and D. helodes are plants from two very different subgenera. Capensis is a typical sundew, and could be crossed with many of the widepsread tropical and northern temperate sundews, but D. helodes is a pygmy sundew, has a very different chromosomal number, and completely different forms of growth and reproduction. Though they are both sundews, they are worlds apart in genetics and could never be compatible.
