    D. Adelae (mold on new growth?)

    D. Adelae 6-24-14 by the_bugman_cometh, on Flickr


    Just wondering if this is mold, or something else (hairs?). It's in pretty bad shape, I think it's almost certainly going to lose most of it's existing leaves. My only form of mold control atm is to manually remove what I can, and spray the affected areas down generously with distilled water.

    I don't currently have an issue with mold in the terrarium. I don't want to introduce one.

    No, it's super fuzzy on new growth. Just how it does, no worries. It looks fine. Keep it bright and go easy with water on the leaves and it'll do great.

    Ohkay! That's good to know, lol. I was hoping that would be the case, but I wanted to know if I needed to hurry up and find some product to combat it. Thanks

    Yep, D. adelae is fuzzy at the growth point.

    A word of warning though, don't change it's conditions rapidly. It doesn't tolerate condition changes such as light, humidity, soil, etc very well at all. It has to be the biggest diva of any Drosera I've ever grown.
