    While there have been some discussions about typical Drosera growing in straight peat, it may be in your best interest to add some other material to your potting soil to make it more airy (perlite is fairly common among most growers).

    Give them lots of light, too. Where are they growing? Under lights or by a window? Or outside?

    I got them under lights. I'll have to add perlite in the future when I repot everything.

    How are you watering them? Are they on the tray method?

    There are no holes in the containers. I just feel the soil and see if it needs to be watered. I couldn't find any 3-4 inch pots local. I need to order some online.

    if you're taking the undrained route, make sure your water's pure as can be, or else salts can accumulate over time.

    I'm using distilled water. I have no way of testing water right now. Sorry for the lack of info.
