    I have had the flower stalks removed for quite a while and the plant has plenty of new growth in the center. I will try putting it closer to the light.

    My D. spatulata has always seemed to be most resistant to loss of dew, but recently here in Southern California we had one of our famous Santa Ana's where winds blow in from the eastern deserts as opposed to coming in from the west and passing over the Pacific ocean, causing very low humidity and brisk winds, lasting for several days. ALL of my Drosera (which I have had outdoors all year) dried up completely with no dew at all, even as I increased the water table and overhead watering. I thought I'd lose them as the dew was absent for 2 or 3 days, including all of the Cape sundews (which really surprised me), and my spatulatas looked very stressed as well (needless to say my slackii looked like it was going to die). As soon as the Santa Ana was over all of my Drosera resumed their normal dew production (slackii catching gnats now) and are doing very well in the full winter sun here. Hope this helps, Ludwig.

    Unhappy

    Didn't someone else have the same problem recently and it ended up the dew was sort of getting diluted out and falling away from the humidity being to high and then condensing on the leaves? Maybe it's the same problem.

    I just got several kinds of Drosera in yesterday, and some have flowers with long stalks. I should probably cut them off?

    Thanks
