    I'm thinking the 95 Temps are stressing them out? It's the only condition that's change.

    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    If they seem a little weather worn, that could be it. But natalensis is a South African plant, they will endure such temperatures in habitat on occasion. If the nights are any cooler they should be fine.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    But if the temps are that high long term...

    Eh, mine endure fairly high temps throughout summer in my greenhouse, probably averaging at 87+ for a few months....

    If they're close to flowering I notice that SA dews will get smaller leaves. Also if they're not being fed enough the leaves will shrink.

    Back in May I had D. admirabilis outside. Got smaller leaves the minute it began flowering. Temps between 80 and 90. I clipped the stalk and boom, leaves back to normal. Had some D. spatulata doing the same thing. Sprayed em with food 2x a week, did not clip the flowers, and the leaves grew bigger.

    IMO it means you have outstanding conditions and the plants just want to grow!

    Jim, those are likely not D. dielsiana. The flower stalks should be straight or rarely somewhat curved below, and hairy at the base. The stigma should not be divided at the tips.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
