    Jim, I did the same thing on purpose a couple months ago. My U. longifolia had an on going fungal infection of the leaves that had been going on all winter. Fungicides nocked the problem down for a week or so, then new leaves would get infected. I stuck it out in direct sun for a couple weeks figuring that the sun would kill the fungus and infected leaves and the fresh air would do it good. Fried every lolon off and killed the fungus to boot. I have it inside now and so far the fungus has not re-occured on the leaves.

    Give yours some time and it will come back from the rolons in the next week or so.

    If it matters, I actually covered it with peat and let it regrow up through the media. It wasn't exposed to any light.

    JLAP, if the plant's growing happy and healthy, then it don't matter. And judging by the looks of your U. longifolia, it don't matter! LOL! I may try the same thing with a couple of my Sarracenia. It might look cool having a bunch of U. sandersonii blooming around the base of a Sarracenia.

    Thamks for the feedback. The trouble with bladderworts is that what is noticeable is above the surface. It's much harder to ascertain what is happening below, and thus whether they are dead of just suffering.

    Funny how differently the sundews have fared. Plants like capensis, spatulata, brevifolia, cuneifolia, and all of the pigmy sundews have relished the conditions. In contrast, adelae, prolifera, and aliciae have either just suffered a great deal or are in fact dead. Only time will tell. Maybe I'll be lucky and nothing or very few plants have died and hopefully there will be enough growing season left for a decent recovery.
