Urgh, people are talking about how their D. capensis had tons of dew and continued to have so afterwards. My lighting may not be a metal halide lamp, but my D. aliciae produced enough dew to catch a fruit fly on it's new leaves, and this plant is almost TOUCHING the light it is so close, and the D. aliciae pot was so much shorter. When I got my D. capensis, it only had a little dew on one of the tentacles, which got on me do to the fact I saw no dew and my hand accidentally rubbed onto it. Thankfully, Drosera and Ping dew isn't hard to come off.
RIGHT UNDER LIGHT (Dionaea were liking it a lot, slight red colouration, constantly producing new traps, many flower stalks, D. aliciae made dew, was in a 3 inch pot, this is 8 inch)
Humidity (45-50%, some people have had tons of dew in only 15% though)
Watering: Every few days I flood the media, not like all the way to the rim of the pot, only slightly. The tray it is in doesn't do much for the tray system, not deep enough, not enough room to get a bigger one. None of the plants get root disturbance though as I do it slowly and it's not a full fledge flood. Distilled water only.
Soil: 50:50 Peat Moss/Perlite.
I've had it for maybe a month, it came from BobZ, I have a feeling it may be my lightings fine but... my D. aliciae didn't make any dew until I got new light and it made new tentacles. But this thing is FLOWERING and it has tons of new, dewless tentacles, IN FACT, the newest tentacle which is closest to the light, has red hairs, but no dew.
So what could I be doing wrong?
Also, it was making new dewless leaves before it flowered, so I don't think it was flower exhaustion.
