I have always grown d. adelae in full sun. The tentacles turned red and all that, and the dew was thick. D. schizandra on the other hand, will die IMMEDIATELY if placed in full sun. I do not understand the problem everyone has with growing d. adelae. Can't water d. schizandra from the top, or get any water on the leaves. They would be dead before you know it! Adelae sundew loves shade to bright light, to full sun. Depends on the individual plant I imagine.
