Drosera capensis in the office

Recommended Posts

Autumn last year this Drosera capensis was down to a few sad looking leaves after being attacked by aphids. I then sprayed it and took it with me to the office, and placed it under a 7W Philips LED bulb (same as in this thread) on a 14-15 hour photoperiod.

It's on a very shady windowsill above a panel heater, and humidity is likely very low most of the time. (About the amount of curved leaves, my coworker is slightly overzealous in feeding the plant.)

Judging by the colouration of leaves and length of the flowerstalk it's doing pretty well. Another indication that white LED bulbs are suitable for growing smaller carnivorous plants.

Sorry about the bad picture quality.
