    Hmmmm, The jury is out as to whether it is still alive. New leaves in the center are brown. The oldest leaves feel dry. The media is wet. I'll give it mor time as was suggested. I feel like Dr. McCoy in Star Trek, breaking bad news to the Captain: "He's dead, Jim." Oh well, I still have more.

    Jim,
    It will come back. Like I said mine have done this a few times now. Both mine are in the dewless dead looking state right now.
    This is how I ended up with 2 plants. I thought the first one was dead, so I bought another. I just left the dead one outside, and after some time I notice that it was growing again.

    Don't let the pot dry out! This is something newbies must learn: sundew plants don't always look pretty and dewey and many times die back. You just need to be patient and wait it out. Now would be a good time to plop it out of the pot into your hand and have a look at the root ball. I think you might find a surprise there.

    Generally speaking, a plant that has died back should be kept less wet. I keep my wintergrowing South African Drosera just barely moist, spatulata, brevifolia and capillaris just moist. Tropical dormancies and rests are sensitive times, and too much wet without good air circulation can result in rot, at least in my experience.

    Thanks, I will pull it out when I get back to work. Surprise! Wonder what that means.

    So I pulled it out. It looked dead. I tossed it. I still have several plantlets.
