    I would wager 70-85 degrees. What is a decently accurate way to measure the temps?

    Sounds more and more like D. spatulata. These typically crap out for a lot of growers after one or two years growth, usually after flowering. Just reseed the pots to keep your colony going.

    A terrarium is unnecessary for these species. Just grow them on a shelf under lights or even on your windowsill or outdoors depending on your climate and situation. Same goes for the South African rosetted species.

    Again, what is your water source?

    The water source is the gallon sized jug of distilled water from wal-mart.

    Do you wash the peat before using it? Some peatmoss producers add fertilizers in their products. Washing the media will help.

    And try to put a little bit of hot water in the certer or brownish plants. Just a drop, or 2. This method resolve my brown/solid drosera rosette centers problem.

    Hope this will work for you!
