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
