    The pics look like plants suffering transfer shock. In general, providing new plants an extra humid 'recovery room' usually helped get them through this potentially trying time with minimal trauma.

    Usually you don't know how the new plants were originally grown after purchasing. Giving them extra humidity in the beginning and then slowly acclimating them to your conditions helps survival rates (for me anyway - except D. regia).

    Well the one that fell apart went into the tank/terrarium right away, the other one went on the windowsill for maybe a week until Peter (pingman) said they should be kept above 68F.

    Here's some photos of the D. paradoxa taken this week:

    Not sure if it is going dormant or not...usually it will form a ball in the middle and won't produce new growth.

    I could be wrong but I'd say it just needs more water or just more time to adapt to your surroundings.

    Petiolaris complex expect a six month wet/dry season with the dry season in autumn & winter. As recommended I've been letting the trays dry out with 2-3 days between watering and adding only a quarter inch or so of water.

    I'm ignorant to the wet/dry season growing of Paradoxa. I just grew it as a tropical plant, when it got cold it came inside under the lights. What benefits are there for giving them a dry period?

    From what I gather petiolaris complex Drosera develop fairly extensive (for Drosera) almost tuberous roots. If the plant goes dormant overwatering could lead to root rot.
