Capensis 'Hercules' is a hybrid of D. capensis 'Alba' x D. aliciae producing a rosette of distinctly thick, rounded leaves.
Sundews in the Capensis family are not only huge and eye-catching, they are great at controlling small insect problems (flies, gnats, mosquitoes, moths) with the dense collection of dewy hairs at the end of each leaf. Once an insect is caught the sticky leaves will curl around it to better digest and reopen once it’s done.
Please do some research before purchasing these plants, as they need specific care requirements.
General carnivorous plant care guide
- Light = 8+ hours full sun/12+ hour grow light
- Water = Reverse Osmosis/Distilled/Rain water only, tap water may kill your plant.
- Media = Well draining media. 50/50 Peat moss/perlite or sand. 100% sphagnum moss works well. Do not use Miracle Gro products or products with added nutrients or fertilizers, it will kill your plant.
Unpacking and acclimating plants
- Please give your plant some time to acclimate to its new home (several weeks), do not expose to direct full sun immediately, start plant in shade/dappled light and slowly expose to full sun over time, some plants do not require full sun and prefer dappled light.
- Some plants may need to be bagged and given high humidity due to shipping stress or being sent out bare root, in this case, please bag or dome the plants and slowly acclimate to lower levels over time.
