    In nature these grow in areas of partial or dappled sunlight. So either put it on a windowsill where it only gets a few hours (2-4 hours) of morning sun (east or north facing are best). If not, make sure it is partially shaded by other leafy plants or 50% shade cloth for most of the day - a couple of hours of direct sun (morning preferably) would be fine.

    Or a plant shelf or terrarium but not within inches of the lights as with most sundews.

    eventually you can adjust it to full sun. ive done it before but it didnt make much of a difference. you just have the right to say i grow D. adelae in full sun great job! it all goes uphill from here! Adelae is a beast! i had an eleven and a half inch root from a bigger plant when i went "weeding" out my pot of adelae's
