Considering capensis seems to be considered by almost everyone as one the easiest Drosera to keep, it is rather discouraging that I seem to be having such a problem with them.
So here's the story... Got one in trade last year. Had it planted in a 50/50 mix of coir/coarse sand & kept it wet/very moist. For most of the summer, had it outside on my balcony (SE exposure). In the fall, I brought it inside and had it on my plant stand in front of my balcony's sliding glass doors. Plant was doing very well for me until I went home to visit the folks for about a week. During that time it dried out completely and I came back to a desiccated mess. Top growth was well and truly dead. So, knowing that new plants can be generated from root cuttings, I removed the roots from the pot and buried them in one of my terrs. The media in my terrs is dried sphag. Pretty much forgot about them at that point until eventually a number of plantlets popped up. Since the original plant had done very well for me outside, I wanted to have at least some of them out there again. So I removed 4 of the plantlets (all had some decent roots) and left 2 in the terr. 3 of them I planted in the coir/sand mix I had used before while the 4th one I planted in dead sphag. I then put them outside on the balcony plantstand such that they would receive early morning sun but be shaded most of the day until they hardened off. The tray I had the cuttings sitting in has about 0.5-1cm of water in it. At first they seemed to handle the transition well ... dewed up and everything. But then they spiraled downhill to the point they look like this:
Suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?
(The 2 in the terr are still doing fine. I water only with RO or rain water. We have had a number of very unusual cool rather spring-like days this summer -- temps with highs in the high 60s/low 70s F. Could that be an issue?)
