    I would keep it out there for now, until it either dies or recovers. Moving weal plants around often does them in / finishes them off. Keep it hydrated and maybe put it under something.

    1. They don't "do" full sun.
    2. They aren't temperate, so having to bring them in and out isn't favorable; although it is do-able.
    3. The elements tend to take a toll on them, in my experience.

    I didn't say that you couldn't keep them outside, I've just observed that it usually doesn't work out.

    I put it back outside, but in a spot that's shaded most of the day, on my porch. It kept getting browner and browner, and I was considering cutting it up and seeing if it'd grow from the root. Well I looked closely today, and guess what I saw! One or two teeny tiny new growths! With dew!

    So I think I'll let it live in its spot on the porch. Now, should I trim off the dead brown leaves, or keep them, since they may or may not be working to shade the new growth?

    Howdy folks,

    In my experience, Drosera adelae does not like it too waterlogged, but nicely damp instead. Also, they despise direct/unfiltered sun. I've had great success keeping them just damp and in at least 70-80% constant humidity, under lights...






    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    Brian is far more experienced experienced than I. I have had this species as a typical window sill plant; in a closet under a fluorescent light; and in the mini-greenhouse, with its Australian cousins. It actually did the best for me in the closet, exposed to the air, where it flowered. Here's the most recent picture, a group photo, in the mini-greenhouse:
