    ah OK then.

    pests or too dry or too hot ? they are still high altitude species 2000-3000 m.

    here , I have the same problems with them but also with antarctica - variegata and villosa species growing less high but in rather cold environment.

    I believe pests considering how none of the others have been affected. When I unpotted that individual, I also saw a translucent larvae (I think fungus gnat, but I am not good at identifying pests). They don't get too hot under my T5s; the temps are always right around their natural summer temp range.

    This winter, I will place some outside, where it can drop below freezing occasionally, and keep some where they have always been (where I grow my tuberous sundews, but day temps will still be around 70 since the T5s are hot). I am doing this experiment to see how they handle freezing, and to see if a winter period is necessary for them (they do not go dormant, but as we know, where they grow it gets cold).
