    Do your plants have plenty of water? These are bog plants and like the soil to be just short of soggy. They should be in standing water trays always. Another possibility is the soil. Is it a mainly peat mixture or long-fibered sphagnum moss? These are some of the more likely issues.

    If you do a search for 'posting photos' or similar you will find several threads that will tell how to do it here. Welcome to TF!

    Yup. They all sit in dishes of rain water. My cape dews are in Peat and sand my Frasier dew and others are in sphagnum Moss. Someone told me to put in full all day sun. I think they got sun burnt. I think. We're growing great till then. Im in FL hot sun. I'm getting use to how to post stuff here. Bit confused on how to post pics but I'll figure it out. I appreciate your help for sure. I took the burnt one out of full sun for now.

    High temps might be an issue for me too. I've given mine a hair more shade, more water, and had little result. They grow, but are still dewless. Temps are 78 at night and 90 during the day. Heat index is usually about 100. I'd bet that is warmer than their natural habitat. Fall should be better for them.

    Yes, plants that have been grown in dimmer light will often take a serious hit when placed in bright sunlight, even though with time they will adapt and actually grow better for it. If you can gradually increase the amount of light there is generally less trauma. Too rapid a change in many conditions can kill plants though they will adapt given a more gradual introduction.
