    Was thinking of re-potting it in new LFS, but your post scares me now. No offense.

    Do you mean the plantlets died or the whole plant?

    I wouldn't worry about the dirt on leaves. New leaves will grow and replace the dirty ones

    Naw, just the plantlets. Looks like I jumped the gun on that one. Oh well!

    The main plant isn't looking any worse than it was on day 1. I've heard people recommend repotting into peat/perlite or peat/sand, or at least some better quality LFS than the shwag that those plants are growing in now!

    Well, I have been doing ALOT of reading from different websites and have decided to do the following.
    I have re-potted it in 100% LFS.

    I am glad I did this! It was shoved in a very small pot and the roots were all balled up. I was able to rinse them with Rain Water and get them untangled. One was VERY long. I made the divit in the pot very deep to accomidate this root and the others, then gently pushed the LFS around the Drosea.

    I hope I did the right thing. It has to be.

    Looking good! If you haven't read this yet, check out the D. adelae recovery guide. That site is run by a very friendly and helpful guy who frequents these forums - I believe his name here is CPlantaholic but I could be wrong.

    I have read and re-read that site. Very good info there! Thank you for sharing though.

    So, I just got back from the pet store where I purchased and fed it some crushed up Freeze Dried Blood worms Hope he likes it!

    That's what I feed my guys too! Great stuff. Too bad it smells like death...

    Here's the state my D. adelae is in right now. Notice how there are no plantlets in the soil around it - they've all died

    Still alive and that counts for alot when they come from Lowe's Looks like it is getting some dew back on it. I am going to use the baggie method and every few days cut a hole in it to acclimate it to lower humidity. Hope it works!
