    well im keeping them outside, my pingu i moved it inside cause i think i caused her a sunburn but the others two, aliciae and capensis are outside on my windowsill, getting sun from 9am to around 2-3pm, direct sunlight. And im using tray method, yep. btw, i saw my aliciae that her the older leaves are red and don't produce any more glue, do they need higher humidity or they're just old and they'll eventually die?

    Sometimes I get that problem with dews...the very red ones wont produce dew but are still otherwise healthy and greener plants produce loads of dew. Can't say I really understand why.

    Cape sundews don't appreciate a whole lot of heat but can tolerate it so some degree in my experience so I would keep an eye on that...

    I've keep my dews with humidity ranging anywhere from around 40% to almost 70%...not sure where you are and what your specific levels would be like.

    Well i live in Romania, my daily temps can reach 35*C in some days, and around 15*C during night. So yea, it's a bit hot. About the humidity, i dont really know, but i think it's about 50-60% most of the time. Little too hot and dry, i know, but im gonna try and put my hand on a terrarium until winter.

    The humidity shouldn't be an issue if they are around those levels. The capensis generally likes temps at or below 80F/26C so if you could keep it shaded for those hot days it might help.

    Will you be bringing it in during the winter? I assume it gets colder and you at least get some frost.

    Yep, it's getting pretty nasty here in winter, frost, snow and things like that. I'll get them inside, and hopefully ill make some money and buy a terrarium and make them a cozy home from this winter on. If i take them to a little shade, wouldn't it make them more bad cause they get less sun?or it's more important not to get a bit cooked than to get more sun?
