    How long should it take for the dew to come back?

    IME, when a Drosera loses all it's dew completely, the old leaf wont make it anymore, but the new ones will.

    it's like the stalked glands have been baked.

    It sounds like it went into shock, from the radical change in envirinment. As said earlier, it should be alright, eventually. Even if the existing leaves do not return to producing dew, you should see new growth from the center that will. Always look toward new growth.

    D. adelae is a weed. Don't fret, and it'll be fine.

    Read up in The Savage Garden about the environment D. adelae likes.
