D. capensis

Your right, I suspect it’s more about age than anything. Bad wording on my part. I hope I can get my capensis to look like palms one day.

Question. What do you do with Sundews that have skirts? Do you just let them get taller and taller? or do you somehow divide or trim the plants? Is there a limit to how tall they get and just stop growing taller?

I tend to let my capensis get as tall as they want, I do however remove all of the dead material a couple times a year to make space for the “basal” offshoot that form from the roots and stem.
