    I finally got some dew!!

    This is a D. adelae I rescued from lowes. I currently have it inside under 2 18" ZooMed tropic Sun flourescent Bulbs. Lights are about 4 inches above the plant. I finally got some dew on a new leaf



    Pitcher's only for me Please.

    Even if that D. adelae is a new rescue, it could use more light IMO.

    I don't know about lighting, but the leaf could be smaller and redder.

    It's probably just because it's a recent rescue, I guess.

    nice! The first dew is always promising.

    If you don't get pink/ red tentacles within 3 months (sometimes it can take a while to recover), then I'd consider moving it closer, but 4 inches sounds reasonable enough for me.

    Patience!

    I agree with CPlantaholic....
    It takes time for plants to adjust to their environment.
    Be patient...
    the plant will let you know!

    Good Luck!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Yeah I am very pleased so far. The new leaf seems half the length of the previous. That good I guess because of the lighting. there is already another new leaf unrolling
