Hi, my drosera look like they are turning brown and wilting away! i dont know what to do! my first plants i got from home depot, i got a Drosera spathulata, it never dewed yet, and the leaves wilted away basically, but while this was happening, it sprouted a flower stem, which is finally wilting, has about 4-5 flower bulbs not opened yet, dead..so, i ordered more plants from **********, another spathulata, it looks like its starting to do the same thing now, cept no flower stem. i also have a Drosera binata, no dew also, my tank is 125 gal tank, 6ft. long x 23" high x 18" wide, 4 4ft. bulbs, staggered 2 and 2, staggered 6 inches, plus, in the center on top, in front, i have 2 24" bulbs, all bulbs are broad spectrum G.E. sunshine florescent tubes. the bigger bulbs are 40 watts, the smaller are 20 watts a piece. the lights come on timed, at 6 A.M. and go off at 8 P.M. i have a digital humidifier inside the tank on the left side, and the tank is glass and saran wrap covered, humidity is any wheres from 78-85%. i crack the glass open a little bit, while im spraying, or landscaping. temp runs from 78 - 87 F. the plants are in the pots, and i keep the bottom plant trays filled, what am i doing wrong? should i stop misting, 2-3 times a day? or mist more? even the new growth looks like its dying, ive already had to clip a lot off the Drosera binata, also, if these plants die off, will new ones grow back? i need help bad with these plants! how can i stop them from wilting away and dying? oh, soil is peat moss, and perlite, any one know how i can fix these?
