    Should I wake them up

    I haven't checked my plants in awhile, I checked them today and the soil was dry and pots were really light. The plants look horrible I think I killed them. Should I water them and put them under lights or just water and keep them dormant? Thanks

    What species are you refering to ? If you're talking about Sarracenia, Dionaea and/or temperate Drosera than you should definitely water them. It may be too early to wake them up in Ohio but you should be careful to never let them dry out during dormancy.

    Looks like its still alive. I'd keep it dormant and never let it dry out again.

    It might die, I've seen flytraps do some crazy recoveries though (especially b52)

    You say your Drosera capensis has white fuzzy stuff growing on dead tissue. That grows all the time on the bugs my butterwort catches. You only should worry if the leaves have gone all limp. If that's so, it means your cultivation methods are in error. You must fix them.

    This is my sundew.



    The B52 is starting to show growth Notice all the grass/moss in the other pot, why do some pots get full of it and some don't?



    And my Typical thrived through dormancy. Its throwing off two offshoots. Will it harm the plant if I just let it clump or should you split them? Thanks
