    Hi Tuyen thi

    A little more information would help. Do you know what type of sundew it is? How are you watering it...are you keeping it wet? Are you growing it covered or uncovered? Sundews like high humidity. You can keep it covered with a clear plastic cup or dome or put it in a terrarium or a tank. Once its in the conditions it likes, it will dew up in a few days usually.

    I only have one sundew and it is a cape sundew (Drosera Capensis) , I keep the soil damp , I keep it uncovered because the humifier is very powerful , and the plant does'nt seem to be catching bugs since I got it .

    That's because it can't catch bugs without any dew silly!
