    Heya everyone, i just picked up my first sundew today. I went out to get another VFT and saw a sundew and thought they looked interesting. What kind of care do these guys need? Just water and light like VFT's? Do you feed them if they are indoor plants? Thanks!

    Do you know what dew you got? There are different needs for different plants. If you could give us some more detail we will be better able to help you.

    You'll have to give us a bit more info than that. There is well over 150 species of Drosera around the world. What you've just described probably eliminates about half of them. That leaves another 75 or so.

    Did the plant have any type of label when you bought it? What shape are the leaves? Does it sit flat on the ground? Does it grow upright?

    I'd like to help but you'll need to describe the plant a bit better [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Regards,

    If you could post a picture, that would help too.

    Hey, i can try to get a picture up tonight. From what you asked, it grows straight up, and there are about 4 things comming up. I didnt see any acutal leaves, just the stalks with the stickies on it. At the base of the plant, there are the same things as whats growing up, except smaller and reddish.
