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 seeds, as they need specific care requirements
