    Unhappy Dying Hamiltonii

    I have a Hamiltonii and he is dying real bad. One of his leaves has been ripped up a bit, he's been repotted 3 times in one month, and he is turning red and not growing at all. Is there any hope for him?

    Don't ask. And I will put some shade cloth over him for the sun. Is there anything else I could DO to help him?

    Actually, they are in a terrarium under grow lights, about 8 or 10 inches from 2 40 watt tubes.

    Drosera hamiltonii stop growing and tend to get a maroon flush throughout the rosette when they go dormant. Back off the watering somewhat and see what happens 2 or 3 months from now.
