    It sounds like it is dropping into dormancy. Let the media dry a bit before adding water again and only add enough water to keep the media just damp.

    lanata's are kind of a pain when it comes to that, they can be very very pick for some reason and then be totally happy in the same set up just a couple months later... or at least that was my experience with them... you may also talk to jimscott I know he's got one going right now that he's been working with recently, you may see what his conditions are.

    Mine seems to be doing well (red traps and dew-laden), under a Grolite, resting on top of plastic, holey thingys, barely in water, in a fishtank, with a submercible heater. I hope to get a camera this weekend and take a picture.

    Oddly enough, though, after putting out about a dozen red, dewy traps, its most recent one doesn't have dew. So that has me a little perpelxed and dismayed.

    Trust me, I feel like Edison, with far fewer attempts, with this Complex of sundews. Pyro, Homer, pingman, Chuck Lyons, Ron Lane,..... are the real pioneers and experts.

    Hmmm, you're growing it on a windowsill? It's been pretty chilly in the LA area lately, down in the high 40s low 50s F at night. Petiolaris complex are basically tropical and get unhappy if the temps drop below say 68F.

    Maybe that's why it started to go dormant?
