    I've repotted them all, hopefully they'll be doing somewhat better.
    Also, are you mean't to be able to feel the dew on the leaves of the butterwort? As when I put my finger on the leaves, they aren't the slightest sticky! thanks in advance

    Most of the commercial mex. pings found at garden centers/home improvement stores are easy to grow species/hybrids that flower most of the year. The leaves should have dew that is noticeable. The plant might not be getting enough humidity.

    65-85% humidity works well. As a general rule, higher temps require for higher humidity, otherwise the plant can dry out.
    The plant would grow best if the day temperatures are kept in the 70's-low/mid 80's.

It looks like a golf tee growing out of it! Can someone please tell me what it is? Thanks.
