    I have a large pot filled with Adelea, and to mirror everything else you've heard, they can be picky, sometimes. I have noticed that once a leaf loses its dew, for whatever reason, it doesn't tend to ever get it back. Early in May, my pot was turning mostly brown and dieing. At that time I cut it all entirely back to the dirt, and set the pot outside. Now I have a nice full pot of adelae, and am sad that fall is just around the corner. The plants really started to look nice outside.

    I don't do anything special for my adelaes. They are outside here in Mississippi with temps getting near 100 degrees. They get some direct morning sun and partial shade the rest of the day. They have lots of dew and are doing fine.

    And I think my plant's been getting too much light indoors, and it only gets 4 hours of morning sun, maybe? Unless it's just been the heat that's been getting to it. That could very well be.

    On a side note, I noticed that when I lift the Sterilite container, it smells WONDERFUL under there! Who knew sundews smelled so good?!

    I want some of that!!!!!!!! So that was grown in a house, not in anything special to keep humidity up? Was the house air conditioned, by chance?

    AC time is ending, though. The snow in a few months will help make my windows brighter, too, even if there is less daylight time.
    That plant is growing out of the bottom isn't it?

    Yes and it's very common, at least for me. They'll grow under water as well. I find babies coming out of the drain holes all the time.
