    Hello everybody,
    I just recently purcheased a D. capensis and only the leaves that are knew and growing have the sticky goo stuff, not the leaves that were already on it when I bought it.

    Will the older leaves produce that sticky stuff?
    or just the new one that are forming right know?

    The mucilage(I like using this word)must have dried off the older leaves during shipment. That's also happened to me, and the goo never came back. This may vary from sundew to sundew. I have a filiformis 'all red' that lost its mucous during shipment, and had regained most of it within a week. Anyone else had this sort of thing happen? Strange topic!

    I have had the problem with the D. Staphulata....

    I just got the humidity way up in the area that I grow them and they all got their 'dew' (you say tomato) back.

    They same thing has happened when I did that with all of my Pings.

    I feel sorry for any bug that comes neat them...NO CHANCE >=)

    Hey jaie,
    Thanks for the tip. The plants I mentioned were windowsill-grown, so no wonder I had a 'dew dilemma'. hahaha I had 'mucous matters' or how about the 'goo grievance'? ooh sorry... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I have had plants on a window sill...I just put a dome over them ( just be careful about the 'fry-factor'). just something that will GOOSE the humidity.
    I have played with different plants and increasing the humidty..everything has done better with more. Although they did ok with less.

    Sure I'll find a way to try that. The domes would have to hold plenty of humidity(duh!), but still have adequate ventilation e.g. holes punched into them.
    thanks,
    Chris
