    Is My Sundew Being Cooked?

    My sundew I got from Lowe's used to produce the nice dew and look nice. Then I started putting it outside since it got warmer out. My other plants transitioned nicely, like my VFTs and pitcher plants, but this plant now looks like this, with no dew, and wiry whateveryoucallemthatholdthedew.



    If I keep it out, will it adjust and grow new leaves, or should I just keep it in a window?

    Do you know which species it is? The Picture doesn't work. If you got it recently, i'd say thats normal, as it is probably adjusting to more liight, sundews love sun, unless you have D. adelae, which prefer shade.

    THis what D. Adelae


    If its not that one whatever you got is just adjusting, also remember to get the media moist.

    Ok Yes thats an adelae they don't like direct sunlight, put it somewhere where it gets bright shade ( it won't do too well in really dark shade. Put it somewhere where it gets no direct light, somehwere shady but not to shady.

    D. adelae should really be kept inside in a bright window or under lights. They don't do too well outside. (Unless you have a greenhouse.)

    Drosera Adelae prefers much less light than most Sundews, and a loooot of humidity. grow it in a small terrarium until it picks up the pace again, then move it to a windowsill.

    If it was getting cooked, I'd suggest a nice, thick, savory reduced sauce with steamed asparagus on the side.

    The Lowes here never sells anything but Dionaea .

    I think what happened is that it's environmental conditions changed significantly enough to put the plant into shock. Now you just have to wait it out to see if it's dead or just extremely upset.
