Drosera capensis, Cape Sundew
Drosera loves bright sunlight. Ideally indirect in UAE. Do not place it outside in summer.
The pot with the plant must always be sitting in pure water. It likes water with low TDS, If the TDS is higher than 100, use distilled, or clean rain water.
Donot fertilize. If the plant is not catching its own food, it needs to be fed in the traps with live insects, rehydrated dried blood worms, or other kinds of fish food high in insect-derived protein that can be conveniently rehydrated. If you use dead food, the traps need to be massaged to stimulate full closure and digestion
Drosera capensis, commonly called Cape Sundew is one of the easiest of all carnivorous plants to grow. It is medium-size with long strap-like leaves, loaded with red tentacles. It has a nice overall green and red appearance and glistens brightly in the sunlight. Insects are lured to the plant and get mired in the sticky dew of the tentacles. The leaves slowly roll over on to the prey in about 30 minutes, creating an effective digestive pouch around the victim.
