    My Drosera A has rotted all the way from overwatering. I currently keep it indoors, uncovered, with natural light. I keep it in a plastic tray and water it when necessary. Outside is not an option as of yet. I live in Michigan and it is still pretty cold. Any advice to promote growth would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a digital pic but I can't seem to download it to this post.

    D. adelae is pretty hardy and will usually come back to life after playing dead for a few weeks. I'd keep doing what you have so far. Keep the soil dryer (slightly moist to the touch) to discourage the growth of fungus until your adelae recovers. As a backup, you can propagate it by leaf or root cuttings easily in case the main plant doesn't recover.

    Mine just came back after 3 months of being a brown ball. I haven't been able to keep this plant looking alive, but I haven't been able to kill it either..

    I hear ya.My first plant took far too long to recover. In the end, I tossed, even though its roots wereintact. Shoulda just left it alone for another 2 months!
