    It's about seven inches away from 4 t5ho bulbs set to a 8.5 hour photoperiod

    It once was growing very fast (actually the light was about an inch further away then), putting out a leaf every few days.

    You need new bulbs. That plant is so light starved that it's not even recognizable as D.ramellosa. That media is obviously no good. Carefully repot that plant into a mix of about 4 parts sand to 1 part peat and get it under more appropriate lighting a.s.a.p. Tuberous Drosera also need to be fed heavily while in active growth, I prefer to use Maxsea or orchid fertilizers at least once a week.

    Here is a thread that I started on here for the care and cultivation of Tuberous Drosera that may help you out.

    Oh no! Well I'm glad I got advice before I screwed things up further. Is it possible that it is looking etoliated because it needs to be fed more? I am not sure how often "often" is for tuberous drosera, so I would feed it a bit of beta food every few weeks. I don't know if it is the bulb's fault, as they are much brighter than my T8's and I am growing Heliamphora and South American Sundews under those T8's and they are looking good with plenty of coloration. So for now I am just bringing the lights down as close as I can, the other drosera under it do not seem etoliated, do tuberous Drosera need and exceptional amount of light compared to others, such as pygmies?

    Also, I do have Maxsea 16-16-16, should I used a 1/4 teaspoon per gallon mix, or do you recommend something else?

    Also, would it be better to try to get it back on its feet before repotting it? Or would it be better off in a better media asap?
