    Angry

    Some of my D. aliciae rossetes have turned a really funny brown colour. Other rossetes are fine. The funny coloured leaves are NOT producing dew.
    Whats going on and how can it be fixed? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    Any help appreciated,

    Hey Dino,
    Some of my aliciae did that, too, when they didn't like being thrust from flourescent light right into the sun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    They have since recovered, though and have resumed growing dew-producing leaves. Where do you have them? They may just be stressed for one reason or another....

    It could be sunburn. Are the plants affected still producing center growth? If so they should recover. This is a species that frequently returns from the roots, so even if the rosettes die back completely keep the pot in cultivation.

    It does sound like all the stuff said, but I would not think a East window would cause that....Isn't there a fungus that S. African drosera are prone to that makes them turn reddish-brown with no dew? I think it's on the ICPS seedbank page.

    Yes there is, but it is usually more prevalent in enclosed situations. Without a photo it's hard to tell where this plant is at. If it is fungus, I normally would advise increasing the air circulation and possibly the use of Cleary's (PFT sells this product). In either case, sunburn or fungus, only time will produce a dewy plant again, the currently affected glands will not recover their dew.

    So, it would not be a bad idea, either way, to clip all these leaves off and have the rosette put out new leaves, eh?
