    My green, dewy adelae for the past 6 months is now looking a bit pale and far less dewy. Is it finally dying or just going through a slowing down period?

    Hard to tell, but if conditions haven't changed I would say you are experiencing the unpredictable moodieness of the "Queensland Sister's" , or the grow n' go syndrome associated with D. adelae, D. schizandra and D. prolifera.

    Yeah. One of mine just up and died within a week. It was okay, though. Since I have so many of them. They're like a plauge. Well.... a pretty one. ~_~

    After they multiply and fill a pot, separate them. Some will die occasionally like people have said here, but this way, you will always have some going.

    They seem to be very moody sundews, as stated. They will grow great for a while with lots of dew. Then all of the sudden less dew and no new leaves for a while. Then they seem to start to grow again. I think mine has "died" around 3 times now. Good thing I never throw it out. It starts growing again.

    That might be all that is happening, but it is the first time I've experienced this. Did you do anything to alter its state or did you ride it out? Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Hey Jim, First thing I noticed is when their dying they go quick- like in a week.
    most of mine have died back at least once but always resume growth or sprout plantlets from the base.
    I always suspect everything is a trap....thats why I'm still alive

    Times fun when you're having flys
