    Yeah heat is definitely not the issue. I grew one outdoors all year,in summer we had a week long period of 100 degree weatherand it didn't phase it...it even flowered during that time. I even grew one through the winter, snow and hard freezes, everything washington could dish out. It died back in winter but has 3 growth points now

    You should also keep it in a tray with water like sarrs, remember these plants like damp conditions, and they called sundews for a reason.

    Okay, I just watered the soil to the point of being waterlogged. In addition, I placed it in an area where it gets like 5 hours of direct sunlight

    If it really is etiolated, expect some leaf burn and die off with that move ahmad.
    My caps get full direct sun from 10 or so in the morning, to around 4 in the afternoon. then somewhat direct, partial shaded sun from 4 till nightfall

    Actually, i went outside today, and noticed BOTH my capensis have stopped too! (All red and Broad Leaf) I don't know why, all the plants around it are thriving (its in a bog) but the capensis.... aren't. One (Broad Leaf) Has a flower stalk with a triple mutated flower that looks like a trident. The all red does not, but they look like Ahmands, exept with older leaves.... It's weird. o.o Are they crowded out by the taller drosera? (D.California's Sunset and D.Filformis spp. Filmormis) or shaded out by sarracenia. I highly doubt the shaded out because Brokken's mini-bogs are filled with capensis and binata and mostly shaded out...
    I highly doubt their too dry since I flood the bog every 2 days... maybe too much water?
    The water is fine because other plants in the bog are fine, and I buying from vending machines :3 25c/gal.

    Any ideas?

    I'd say it's the heat now that both you and Ahmad are having trouble. You both live in hot climates.

    ry doing a ph test on your peat moss,not all peat mosses are created equal.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
