    Ok, I got some CPs at Lowes about a month ago, and I was growing them in my windowsill for about 2 weeks, but decided to move them outside, so they could take in more sun. Now, my VPs are doing ok, but my sundews are really not doing well. There loosing there green, and shriveling up, and there is no longer dew on them. My purple pitcher plant really doesn’t resemble a purple pitcher plant, it just looks like leafs, one has a tiny opening. I don't really know what to do to improve there growing conditions, but I will go out tonight and take a few snapshots of my CPs and where they are growing. Thanks in advance for any help you may give me. ( =

    If the sundew is D. adelae, it will prefer shaded locations. I fried my first one that way. I left the pot out side under a table and after some time the plant did come back.

    Merry meet!

    Sounds like too much too fast, and the Drosera got sunburned. Believe me , outdoors is the way to go, but just like someone who is fish belly white, the process has to go in slow stages unless the plants are started from seed outdoors. I advise that you screen the Drosera with some white plastic now in order to preserve the chloroplasts that are left, and possibly the plants will recover in time. The new growth will be stronger if they do.
