    Hi people

    I'm new to this forum, and I would like some advice.
    I got my sundews(cape sundew and a D. spatulata) today and it looked like somebody droped and kicked it around the block a couple of times. It had dirt and some missing leafs, I
    just want to know if it was a good idea to repot the two, since half of the orignal soil was missing. And if i should take a knive and cut the leafs off that were damaged in this brutaly abused plants of mine. Thanks.......

    Repot the plant in the same mix as it was in (50/50 peat/ silica sand works), syring off the leaves with pure water and all should be well shortly. D. capensis is a survivor.

    Wait and see what dies and what recovers, then prune.
