    I grew my capensis open tray, on a south facing window sill, in a rather dry laboratory. Humidity didn't seem to a factor in its growth, health, appetite, or willingness to flower. But Light did. Generally speaking, dew production seems to be more a function of lighting. More light -> more dew and greater capability of capturing prey, which tends to be the little gnats and other flying insects.

    Sszvein, you can get freeze-dried mosquito larvae in the fish food section of a pet store. It costs a few dollars (US)for a small jar, which should last a while. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, I've been watching carefully for a while, and after 4 days, the leaf is starting to curl on my nice, apetizing fly, really it's so slow it's barely noticable until quite a while.
    Pep talk not going to work hum? Too bad.
    Thanks guys! I really feel more secure with all of you guiding me through this. ^_^

    PS : Fishfood powder?!?

    Here's a pic of mine from a few months ago, at the beginning stages of sending up a flower scape:

    There's barely any red at all...why not? Light is a factor?

    It is capensis 'alba'. Other sundews receivng the same conditions have turned red. Light is the biggest determinant for dew production.

    fishfood powder is just that- fishfood powder lol. i buy wardley betta pellets, crush them into a fine powder. then i just dip the leaves of my drosera directly into it. on small drosera that lay flat i sprikle the powder on it. i also feed it to my pings, neps, sarracenia, heliamphora,- auctually the only think i don't feed it to is byblis, dionaea, and utrics.
