    The shock of shipping can cause them to dry up, normally you will need to wait for new leaves to grow..
    If the light is to far away that could still be a problem.

    And they can play possum for a long time. I just had mine produce it's first leaf in 8 months. I found the hard (easy) way that this plant doesn't like full sun, yet it's now starting to make new leaves under my lights, odd cause the lights are coloring up everything else more then the sun did...

    Whatever you sprayed them with could also be the problem.

    A CP source in California has informed me of adelae's sensitivitiy to chemicals whether they be pesticides, fungicides, etc. Perhaps you should flush the pot with plenty of RO water and then wait. Hopefully with time it will come back.

    I have no doubt at all that the chemical bath robbed you of your dew. Flush the pot once, put it in a water tray, leave it alone, give it lots of light, and wait. Chemicals can often times affect drosera in this way. Good to use the chems for protection, but expect adverse effects from time to time. Sometimes, they will kill your plants. Be careful.

    My adelae did the same thing. In fact the older leaves have lots of dew, but the leaves right above it have none. Then the newest leaves produce lots of dew. It looks kinda wierd, anyway I only have one 30w cf above it and it stays nice and red. Good luck with yours.

    yes, IME adelae is extremely sensitive to chemicals. i can't touch it with anything and it will only grow in pure LFS (i use live). very sensitive to water aswell.

    That's funny, mine will only grow in pure peat moss, and it won't do anything in live or dead lfs. I,too,can only water it with distilled or RO water as it is very sensitive to minerals and chemicals in water IME.

    hmmm well i did "wash" it with distilled water. I knew that they were sensetive to fertilizers but I wasnt sure about the other things so I did anyways. I looked at the new still rolled up leaves cloesly and i notices strands of somthing on them. here are some pics of both of them...

    If those pictures are taken under your grow lights, it's not enough light.
