We are all big fans of carnivorous plants here at Arium! Drosera capensis is commonly known as Cape Sundew. If you have any flies or fungus gnats flying around your home, the sundews will surely catch them. Their tentacles are sticky, and once the flies stick to them they'll get stuck. In about 30 minutes or so their tentacles will fold over their prey.
Carnivorous plants do best when given a TON of light. They can handle some pretty intense direct sun! This is due to most species being native to bog habitats. They will need to stay consistently moist in the soil to also mimic a bog habitat! So you can either water as the soil starts to dry or even keep the plant in a saucer of water to ensure it does not dry out. If you choose to re-pot, do NOT use regular potting soil. Carnivorous plants need something that is going to be pretty void of nutrients as they get everything from the insects they eat. You can re-pot using 100% sphagnum moss or a soil mixture labeled for carnivorous plants.
