    so flowering + misting = no dew probably.

    would it help to cut off the flower shoots? the flowers are lame anyhow =P
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    If you don't care about the flower or seeds then yeah cut it off and see what happens. It couldn't hurt.

    can the lack of humidity dan windy circumstance be the reason of dewless sundew? I have same problem with my new Drosera capensis. Old leaves dried and the tip of young leaves are darken.
    I bought it about 3 weeks ago. The media was broken due to the journey from west java to east java and I re-potted it. I put the pot in trays of demineralized water (artificially acidified using sulfuric acid to pH 4.0-4.5... I put in the same water tray for Dionaea).
    What shoud I do?

    It looks fine!(actually better than mine whenever I got my first D. capensis) One thing that would have helped though would have been a quick soaking in superthrive.

    Otherwise it looks like it will pull through.

    lol! wow...now thats called using your resources. lol! I should do that...I use soo many acids and buffers in my biochem lab...I should probably do that too lol!

    But I guess since it is going to start snowing in canada soon...I will have enough snow to collect and condense to water to stock up for the plants.

    Light and time for new leaves to emerge & develop should be all that is necessary for dew production. People associate morning dew on grass with water and think that the dew on sundews is the same and/or that more water / humidity would bring about the dew. But CP dew isn't the same was water dew.

    The H2SO4 shouldn't be necessary. Sphagnum peat provides the necessary acidic pH.

    I do not know exactly what is the composition of media, but it has pH > 5. I closed the media using moss as you see at the picture.

    I agree with Jim Scott. These plants really don't need a whole lot from my experience. A couple hours of sunlight on a sill will make it pretty happy.
