A mass of sticky death for fungus gnats! October 2020
Drosera capensis is one of the most hardy, versatile, and beautiful sundews! All of mine arrived as hitchhikers on other plants and I eventually potted two of the largest ones into their own pot. I stuck them in my south-facing windowsill and they've been catching fungus gnats and flowering ever since.
