    Question Sorry, more repot questions.

    Is he healthy or should I repot him? I have never grown a sundew before, only pitcher plants and VFTs, so I wouldn't know.

    I don't see a picture or know what sundew you have. Was this a "Lowes cube of death" plant? Then likely you have a D. adelae or D. spatulata. Neither plant require a dormancy and grow very nicely at window sills. do you have this:

    D. spatulata

    or this?

    D. adelae

    It's a D. Capensis I believe and it looks fine to me. I'd leave it alone!

    Not sure of your lighting but they grow well at window sills, all year long. artificial lighting ought be 4-6" above the plant.
