    Wow that's a nice looking plant. I can't wait until I get some flowers out of mine...

    I think I realized what was causing my D. adelae to decline so rapidly. I posted another thread about this in the Greenhouse/terrarium board. Turns out that the sand I had used to mix up my last batch of media was absolutely packed with carbonate minerals (it failed the white vinegar test that I neglected to perform last time I mixed my media). Being that these plants are particularly sensitive to chemicals in the soil, my D. adelae probably took quite a bit of offense at this.

    I repotted it last night but I fear I was too late. Luckily, my local Lowes just got a new shipment of death cubes so I can always make a fresh start!

    Looking forward to seeing your perky sundew, Dave. You started things off the right way!

    I especially like them after they've attained a nice dark red coloration when growing under strong light and planted in a peat moss/redwood bark mix:


    It looks kinda like blood.
