    Question Drosera recovery time from mail

    Hi,
    I'm new to CPs. I just got my Cape Sundew from the mail on Thursday and I was wondering when they can recover and start producing dews again. Right now it's under a T5 HO light (which I just got last night). I set a timer for 16 hours. It's in the tank that gets up to 80 degrees. I got it with (I believe) 1:1 peaterlite from the flytrap shop website.

    Thanks!

    D. capensis will recover in less than a week if shipped bare-root. Shipped potted, there will usually be hardly any setback at all.

    I agree. They will usually produce new day tentacles within a week or so with good water and light provided.these are very hardy CPs so you can't really do much wrong with them...give them time to adjust to life outside of a jiggled around package and you'll be quite surprised at how fast they'll recover Goodluck

    I've only had one sundew shipped to me bare-root and it was already looking much healthier in about a week. After a month I couldn't even tell it had been bare-rooted.

    Also depends on how it was shipped. Sometimes you will only see a little hickup in the dew production.
