Drosera capensis ‘Albino’ (also known as the ‘Alba’ form) is similar to D. capensis ‘Typical’, however it lacks much of the red pigmentation of its counterpart. The plant will remain all green while its dewy stalks turn only slightly pink under intense light. D. capensis ‘Albino’ produces all white flowers and is easy to care for making it a good plant for beginners.

    My plants came very well wrapped and in great shape. The tutorial provided on YouTube for how to plant and care for them was spot on and easy to follow. They are currently thriving I’m my window sills and catching the little gnats I’m plagued with due to my other house plants. Thank you for the great service!!

    My albino capensis was shipped with secure packaging. The entire plant was wrapped securely in a damp paper towel, bagged up, and was placed into its own cardboard tube to protect it during shipping. Wonderful job with packing! My new sundew is acclimating well!
