    After I put my sundew in direct sun it started dying as well, so I recommend shortening the amount of time its in direct sun, and give it more indirect light.
    Some random words.

    FloridaDendro, I assume you are from FL and depending upon what part, the sun is waaay to strong down here for anything to grow in a pot in direct sun...especially if the pot is dark colored. Put a thermometer in the pot and check it about 1:00. I'll bet you get a reading of over 100. Little "dews" just up and die at that temp.
    Try shade screen, at least 70%, between 11 am and 6 pm.

    Sounds like a bit of shock, going from one situation to another tha was too much for it at one time. As was suggested a gradual approach will work better.
