    Unhappy

    ok i just got a new sundew a week ago. At first it had a lot of dew and then it dried up b/c of the humidity. i put it in a terrarium and so far i see very little dew but dew none the less. how long will it take for my dew to come back?

    The dew should return when the humdity is correct. Dont worry, give it a few weeks.

    Wolfpackgurl? You must have seen the forum name,"Flytrapgurl." This could be interesting. What kind of sundew did you purchase? Was it a drosera spatulata? did you get it from a local nursey or Home Depot? Did the container say, Little Pot of Horrors?" I have personally experienced having a Drosera capensis & Pinquicula primuliflora shrivel up when radically changing their environments. They didn't die but expressed their respective displeasures to me by looking dead. Keep the lid on loosely and wait it out. Keep it in one sunny, room temp spot for awhile. There's no guarantee, but stable conditions should help. Good luck and welcome to the forums!!!!!!!! ask questions and have some fun!!!!!!!

    If your not good with plants, CP's may not be the best thing to grow for you. But good luck.

    As for the dew, cephalotus88 is correct, give it a bit, as long as you have good humitity (where there's condensation on the glass), you will get dew.

    Have some patience. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Plants need adjustment time when their environment changes. And BTW...its HOME Depot, not Office Depot that sometimes carries a few CPs. Most of the time in places like HD and Lowes, the plants are dead or dying from poor care.

    D. spatulata seems pretty hardy. It was one of my first CP's, after buying a VFT. I got it at a local nursery as a clump that I thought was one plant. Turns out there were ~20 o them. Weeks later there were ~30. They just kept on producing plantlets. I have plucked them from the perimeter ant pushed them into different pots, half expecting them to shrivel up. They didn't. they just multiplied. Hopefully, this spring they will flower. It's kinda like having guppies.
