    D. adelae turning brown.

    Recnetly I put my D. adelae under flourscent lights, (2 twisty and 2 long 50 watt bulbs.) where all my other drosera go, and the older leaves are turning brown, but the new ones are super mucusy and green. I think this is normal, but is it ok?

    It will be fine. Older leaves die off first.

    Sounds like the older leaves reacted to the change but the plant kept on going. You're alright.

    Normal! My bottom leaves brown out as well. I just trim them off. GREAT plants!
