    Keep them close to the lights and watered, and ignore them. If you can't ignore a plant without it dying, it probably isn't a good plant to keep anyways. Many sundews seem to like drier conditions than other CPs, and they don't mind a breeze either. Trays are good, but you probably already know that. Be prepared to chop flowers or harvest seed regularly if you don't want total chaos. If you get D. capensis, just grow it outside; they take up so much space (and invade so readily) that they're hardly worth growing indoors. They're happier outside, anyways. Get D. prolifera - it does great in Nep conditions, and is super easy to propagate.
    Enjoy your plants,

    about the adelae,
    does this one prefer higher humidity? will this one do as a windowsill plant?

    i think adelae can handle low humidity and will do well in a windowsill.

    D. adelae doesn't really need higher humidity, but I've heard that it appreciates it to some extent. A cooler windowsill would be ideal for this plant, since it seems to dislike higher temperatures, at least for me anyways.

    Where did you get your D. adelae from? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
