    In the duplex I live in right now... I can hardley get any sunlight because all my windows and porches face to the west and the sun rises in the east. The most sunight is around 9AM - 3PM but im at school around this time. I leave my plant on a dusty window sill closest to the east and the most sunlight it gets is about 4 hours.

    No, placing it outside is not an option because the neighbor kids will totally destroy it.
    Any suggestions?

    I don't know if this has been said clearly enough but it is very important that you do not wet the leaves. Don't pour water on it thinking it will be more dewy and nicer to look at.

    You won't like it if somebody poured tap water into your eyes. It's the same for these plants. When you water, under no circumstances should you try to wash the dew from the leaves or wet the plant and think you're adding more dew.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    ditto to the above. the dew is not water.

    4 hours seems...i dont even know. if the new leaves come up and the tentacles are red. its enough.

    Congratulations on your first sundew. Drosera capensis is one of the easiest CPs to grow. Before you know it you'll be swimming in them!
