    Well the D. venusta looks ok to me really.

    By sink holes I mean areas where the medium has collopsed down, leaving a sunken area or hole.

    Here's my D. venusta 4 days after I got it (Dec 06) still adjusting to my conditions:



    then about 8 months later (a little over 1 year ago).




    I don't have any more recent photos but it looks pretty much the same as yours. It's probably twice as tall as the latest photos with 2/3rds of it old leaves where the tentacles have dried up. The pups in the pot are at least twice as large. I was going to repot it but it started to flower again a couple weeks ago.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I get the same thing and wonder how long a given rosetted sundew actually lives. How old is it when it was received? Maybe a little bit of moss removal or top watering into another container to rinse the media would help.

    I think I read many types can live for decades?
