    your D. paradoxa appears to be going dormant. As long as there is some green in the center you should be ok. It can be quite alarming when these go dormant, all of the outer leaves can die back in a few days!
    Good growing!

    Nice pictures. I would have worried if a plant apperently croaked on me like that.
    that makes no logic

    Thanks for the pics, one of my paradoxa and my petiolaris look like yours. I guess it is time to dry out a bit.

    great plants!
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    One of the guys at the last Los Angeles Carnivorous Plant Society meeting has great success with tissue culture propagation. He usually brings a few trays of plants to sell or trade. I bought the D. venusta and the D. glabripes from him. The D. paradoxa is from him too, he was giving it away for what ever reason.

    The D. paradoxa is "Mount Bomford".

    Well the "sick" pot is very sad looking now. At least when I took those pictures the biggest plant in the pot still had its leaves and the other plants hadn't dried out yet.

    I'll try to take some pictures tomorrow, as the Utric. in my D. aliciae pot is blooming and it will help identify the species.

    D. paradoxa update: Yesterday I noticed some new leaves with dew on them. The one plant (upper right corner in photo above) in the "sick" pot that didn't fall apart has a few leaves with dew too.
