yeas I use a lid on my tank,my D. adelae are in a sealed ten gallon under a flourescent fixture.
I don't know why but there are more experienced cp growers who have trouble witht his plant but I find it very easy to grow.

Those are great! Nice dewy and green, and flowering!
My adalae are always reddish/rust colored (too much light) and mine have never flowered.
I'm taking them from my growrack and moving them into a windowsill; see if that perks 'em up a little.

is the rippling effect on the leaves a symptom of something wrong?(ph?). i see alot of pictures where the leaves look perfect but mine kind of shows the rippling as yours does...

This is my first adelae "above". I have separated several times sense I got it. I believe this is the best cp for first timers. I have actually ripped a piece out of the planter and shoved it a small potter and my buddy threw it in his kitchen window and it just took off. When I separate it I just leave a nice silver dollar clump in my new soil same pot and it takes about 6-7 months to fill this pot up, you can even take roots and set them right underneath the soil and a few weeks you have little starters.
I had this one in my window at the old apartment and it was thriving, we moved and you can see the new window doesn't get as much sun as the last one so it has kinda died off "well the big multi fork dew died" the capes and lance leafs are still making it. So what I did was just slapped one of those cheap hardware store light dish clamp "below". They are getting back some dew and new shoots. ez.
Hope this helps
Generally speaking, D. adelae loves high humidity and slightly cooler temps. I've grown nice sticky Drosera on shelving under lights with no special provisions for humidity, but my adelae only do well in a mostly enclosed environment. Right now, mine are under a glass greenhouse but with the bottom raised so there is air circulation. I also had more success with the plant grown very wet...almost aquatic in pure LFS.
