    Ok I really have no idea what is going on. The seedlings grew to about 4 mm in diameter and stopped growing. Instead they are withering away. The are in 50:50 sandeat mix in the tray with water (pot is 2.5 inches tall, water level is about half an inch) with saran wrap covering the tray. What am I doing wrong?

    I took the pot out and instead put it in an open tray. Pictures in the morning.

    with my seedlings, the growth was fairly slow when they were kept unfed. feed them a little something if you can and see what it looks like in a week.

    as for the withering away, not sure. too much humidity perhaps? i don't keep the saran on after the traps have opened.

    I know cape sundews have a rep for being easy growing but they're actually quite difficult to grow outdoors in south Florida.

    Temps of 85F and unfiltered sunlight is a death sentence for these plants IME.
