    Drosophyllum winter problem

    Dear All,

    Im totally new here, but after reading the post, i really found a lot of good tips about CPs, and i can see, that its an extremely cool community
    Actually, i am living in Portugal, and growing some CPs as well, but my favourite is the pt dewy pine for sure

    I germinated the seed in july, and it was growing really fast and heathy until now.
    From the end of november, the downer leaves were starting to dry, and this problem is getting close to the top of the plant.
    Here are 2 pics from january, and the present state of my drosophyllum.



    I really dont have the foggiest idea what happened, until now it was everything all right, but now it seems that the plant is going to die

    Do you have any ideas? Thanks for the answers!

    Well, it can be! Portuguese cp growers adviced me to give water (after they saw the pictures). I gave some, and now it looks worst, so i think the same, it can be the problem of too much water, but before that i almost didnt give any for 1 month....
    The soil must be fully dry, or can be a little bit moist?

    Thanks for the fast posts!
