    it could come back from the old stem or the roots depends how badly it was scorched.

    Hey TT,
    How close did you get the plants to the lamp? Also, what kind of 60w bulb is it? If it's an incandescent, it won't do the plant any good.

    My alicaea got scortched by the sun, but they recovered. It took a while, though, so you'll have to be patient.

    it only scorched about 12 leaves theres new growth so its still ok i cut the scorched leaves off cause they were getting worst anyway its already grown 3 leaves to replace the so hopfully it will be a quick recovery

    the lamp was 10 inches away from the plant but i dont no what type of bulb it was

    its still flowering and the flower has been open for 2 days then it shut
    hmmm should i test it again to see if thats the way to keep the flowers open [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    ive got some seeds from it know so if it dies ill start again but it should be healthy
    if i live for tommorow there will never be an eventfull day so go on break a leg

    I have yet to meet a SOuth Afrincan Drosera species that would not come back from the roots if given time to do so.

    I suggest you ditch that incandescent bulb. As has been stated, they don't have the right spectrum amd obviously can do more harm than good. Go flourescent!

    Huh?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] How can D.alicea seeds be ready that quick
    Tree terror, your D. alicea only flowered 1 week ago, it takes a few weeks for the seeds to mature.

    i thought it was ready when i posted the reply starman but i found out it wasnt so i didnt cut it off
    i put it under a lamp because theres no sunshine here at all and it was doing realy well untill it got scorched it is fine though now and the leaf i left on it is really red and producing dew and when i say red the whole leaf is red.
    its a shame i cut off the other leafs also something else really wiered is its catching more flys even though its in the same room i noticed it caught 4 flies before the scorching and now theres 15 on the leaves right know
    if i live for tommorow there will never be an eventfull day so go on break a leg
