    The capensis died on me!!
    It was on its side this morning (not the pot, the plant) and so I just put it back up and thought it was nothing. Apparently I was wrong. Came back from school 30 min ago and saw that it was all dry and brown with no sign of life. It was 93 today and yesterday so maybe thats what killed it. But the strange thing is that the soil smelled like cow manure. I smelled the other pots and only the bigger sarrecenia smelled like it too. The water smelled of it as well so I changed it. I am using distilled from now on. Good thing it was only a capensis. But still it reduced my collection by a quarter.

    Anyone know what caused it to die? Has this ever happened with your soil or water?

    Rain everyone once in a while, but mostly water from the fridge. It had a low ppm though. About 45 ppm

    I would say to definitely stop using the fridge water.. Even if it has a low PPM, minerals can still built up in the soil over time. Sarrs dont mind too much about it, but drosera definitely do..
