    1) filliformis needs to go dorment, you let yours go dorment?
    2) if it's in more then one species, I'm guessing root rot. flush the pots with water and then set them on a tray outside the terrarium in a plastic bag. Open up the bag a little more each day untill the plant gets used to less humidty and then ditch the bag [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    My Drosera filiiformis ssp. filiformis is dieing right now . It was very a healthy greenish red hibernaculum one day and then the next day it started to rot for no reason . I hear this subspecies rots if it is kept too warm and wet and I think keeping it too warm was the problem because I'm growing the plant outside in southern Califonrnia but my other subspecies tracyi is doing fine and its right next to my subspecies filiformis .

    I grow D. filiformis here in the tropics and they grow very well, almost like weeds. Maybe the strain that you have cannot take heat or there are some other reasons for the condition.

    jon,

    Try using a magnifying lens and looking carefully at the dying leaves for spidermites. I know it may sound silly. But spidermites are pervasive, they are not silly.

    Frequently fungus and/or bacterial rots are just adventitious organisms taking advantage of a prior insect/spidermite/nematode attack.
