Cape Sundew Care Tips

Sun: Full to part sun, they require at least six hours of direct light to thrive.  If your sundew is not producing dew it most likely needs more light.

Water: This will thrive in the tray method, which keeps the soil permanently wet.  Keep your Cape Sundew sitting in a saucer with several inches of distilled, rain, or reverse osmosis water.

Temperature: Cape Sundews do well in a wide range of temperatures and environments. They can take a brief freeze and temperatures into 100f.  They do best with a small drop in night time temperatures of 10-20 degrees.  

Soil: We use a mix of four parts peat moss to one part perlite.  You can re-pot your plant every 3-5 years but they do not need frequent re-potting.

Fertilizer: Apply MaxSea fertilizer (dilute 1/4 teaspoon into 1 gallon of water) to the leave of your plant once per month.

Dormancy: None needed
