    Your plant looks normal to me. Looks like it needs more light though.

    Your growing conditions maybe warmer or drier or something than where they came from. Almost all of the plants I received did the same thing but most are now looking much better.

    Stay on the look out for aphids or other pests. I grow most everything I have outside and I have caught birds pecking at the tips of my sundew's leaves on more than one occassion -- maybe the glistening dew drops attracts them.

    Good strong light is vital and keep them wet but don't drown them. But I do not think your plants look that bad at all.

    That last photo seems like the soil is a bit on the dry side. And the light looks a bit indirect. See if you can find a sunnier spot. Is that pot sitting in a tray of water?

    I think the birds were trying to peck off the dead bug carcasses!

    Well, for the last photo I took it out of it's tray, but yeah, I water via the tray method.
