    All three of the plants you mention in your original post have/can have incredibly different growing conditions. Not to sound harsh, but keeping them all together like that, I would expect them not to look the greatest. Flytraps need to be grown strictly OUTDOORs. The butterwort could also have drastically different care conditions than D. adelae and a VFT.

    I also have lots of experience with D. adelae, and will second what everybody else has said. The plant will get lanky and then die back every once in a while. Given the proper conditions, it will simply grow back from the roots over time. I always just chopped off all the foliage, and let them do their thing. They'll be back, and if you're lucky, flowering in no time!

    As Joseph said take a cutting or 2 and lay them dew side up on the soil mix, they take really easily.

    I had a D.adelea from Lowe's and it had deformed leaves so i cut it sown to the grown and now about four months later i an allready having to divide almost six plants and one is forming the long skinny leaves so i would not do anything to it except give it water and good sun and it should come up good.
