Hi everyone, I’m from Malaysia, where the temperature is typically somewhere between around 28°C and 35°C. Over the past few months I started growing sundews on my balcony. I’m totally new to sundews but so far Drosera Capillaris “long arm”, drosera burmanii, and drosera nidiformis have been doing well. Drosera Paradoxa have been doing ok for a while too until it seems to enter dormancy due to lack of sunlight. However, one sundew that I have difficulty keeping alive has been the supposedly indestructible Drosera Capensis. I had multiple instances where a newly arrived plant will die within a few days right beside other sundews which are doing ok. While browsing through forums, it appears that not many fellow CP growers in the tropics grow Drosera Capensis. I’ve also seen a few growers mention that Drosera Capensis doesn’t do well here, and it will often die back to its roots during hotter months. Which leads me to wonder - perhaps d.capensis’s ease of care and suitability to beginners only apply to growers in cooler regions? While it is a “subtropical” plant, it probably doesn’t do as well in the true tropics, especially when compared to heat loving plants like the petiolaris complex or burmanii. Any thoughts and experiences on growing drosera Capensis in the tropics?
Hello :) New here. Hope this forum isn't as dead as a few others I'm somewhat in a doubt. This Nepenthes was sold under "Rebecca Soper". But when looking at the images on the net, R. Soper has rather dark pitchers, unlike the one this plant has produced? The pitcher in the pic is almost 1 month old. I thought it'll change over time to a darker color. Can I get a confirmation on R. Soper? Or else what species could this be? BTW- I could also use some help on identifying this plant below. I bought it in a carnivorous mix without a specific name. At least it would be nice to know if it's a high or lowland so I now how to treat the plant. Thank you very much
