Carnivorous Plants for Sale

  • Sale! Sold By: Mesa Exotics
    Looking for an easy-to-grow carnivorous plant that amazes with glistening dew drops and leaf movement? Look no further than Drosera capensis alba, commonly referred to as the Cape Sundew! This hearty plant will bring a smile to faces when you witness it snag flying bugs out of the air. Sundews work by producing a sticky, dew-like substance that attracts insects thinking it's a free meal. When they land on the leaf, insects get stuck, and over the course of an hour, the leaf will curl around the prey for digestion. The alba form of D. capensis is unique in that the glands/hairs on the leaves are a whiteish, or almost transparent hue. Flowers on this form are also stark white! Drosera capensis is the perfect beginner's carnivorous plant. It has no dormancy requirement, grows quickly, and will take care of that nagging gnat problem. Even better is that, if left to flower, the plant self-pollinates and produces a great seed set that will help you grow even more plants. Cape Sundews are perfect for classrooms, bright windowsills, or even most backyards. Simply keep it moist in a water tray, and give it distilled water or rainwater. Sunlight and insects will take care of the rest. Shipping note: Mesa Exotics charges $10.00 flat rate shipping to the continental US regardless of how many Drosera capensis you purchase. The sundews ship bare root and go out in the mail on Mondays and Tuesdays to reach you before the weekend.
