    I can appreciate trees blocking the sun. I had that when had my plants in a window of a supply building that was owned by the lab in which I worked. My current setup is a 4 tier rack that has an overhang that prevents the sun from coming in, now that the sun is too high in the horizon. My concern is that now that we are in summer solstice, we are getting ~15 hours of photoperiod. Sundews started from seeds and growing to maturity is kinda like "watching paint dry". It takes a good year anyways, for most of them.

    Do the plants seem happy? Are they dew-laden? Are they red, pink, or green? "If it aint broke, don't fix it". Let the plants tell you what they need.

    D.Adelae growing deformed leaves. UPDATE!

    2 weeks ago I got my rebate check from old uncle sam so I decided I needed a better grow rack and more lights. I went to Lowes and bought one of those 5-Tier wire shelving units and a couple of T8 lights.

    This was My shelf before:


    This is my new grow rack:


    I put my D.Adelae on the bottom shelf under the new T8 lights because it didnt seem like the windowsill was working for it all that well. It has been under those new lights for a little over 2 weeks now and it is showing a big improvement.

    Heres what it looks like now:





    Now all I need is more plants to fill up those big shelfs. Too bad we dont get 2 rebate checks..
    Whenever two man meet there are really six people present.
    There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other
    sees him, and each man as he really is.

    I plan on doing that this weekend. That S.Purpurea was a lowes plant and has been sitting in that windsill for one month where it gets 5+ hours of direct sun and under 16 hours of fluorescent lights. I will put it out on my porch with my Judith Hindles where it will get allday sun.

    Here is a before and after picture:

    Before:


    After 1 month later:
