    Kris, what you saw was most likely a bunch of etiolated D. adelae. When starved of light, they can get rather capensis and sphatulata like.

    Chomp, like everyone has already said, don't listen to those care sheets. They are incorrect.

    Okey, but I've been studying sundews for a very long time now, and I'm not knew to them you know. But I will still send a pic.
    I would say your new to anything you haven't tried.

    We're just trying to look after you... Keeping death cube plants alive is not always easy.

    Yup, adelae then. Try searching the forum for "adelae" and you'll get tons of information on how to grow this exact species. Here's a good thread:

    Yep. I'm really in Antarctica. Hehe, nah, I'm in the Sunshine state.

    If you want to put up a photo, put it up on an image hosting site (like photobucket which already gives you an IMG URL). Just get put [IMG] [/IMG] around the URL if it doesn't already, like so:[IMG] *Photo URL Here* [/IMG].

    So here's a link to a plant of mine:

    Thanks for the help nepfreak.

    I would say your new to anything you haven't tried.
    I HAVE taken care of sundews, just they weren't mine. I was only asking for a few tips. You don't have to pretend that I'm completely clueless. I find it rather offending.

    Hey capensis! You always post while I'm writing messages. It makes it look like I'm ignoring you. Thanks for the advice. I'll try it out.

    No need to be offended Chomp. They are just trying to help you. I actually just purchased my first Drosera Adelae at Lowes 2 days ago. This is the first time I have seen one there. Usually they get in Drosera Capensis. They have one sitting there right now. I had one I bought from Lowes a few years back that over ran my terrarium when it went to seed.

    Those care sheets on those little terrariums, usuallly are just generic. The one on my new dew also said full sun, but the general growing instructions for Adelae are shade, to partial sun. They can grow quite large, so if you do not have a terrarium, it will quickly over grow the cube it came in. They can reach 8" in diameter.

    Funny story came with my sundew........When I purchased it the woman who rang me out, was looking at the cube funny and the plant inside, after she looked some more she finally asked................. does the tongue really come up out of it like that? (Questioning the sticker they use to seal the cube shut.) I gave a chuckle and politely said no.

    Good luck with your new dew!
