    Something is definitely up. You can see the dead leaves of the bisquamata. Perhaps the soil is going bad? It probably wouldn't hurt to try repotting it.

    What should I repot it in? I've never repotted one of my carnivorous plants before.

    Take a quick look at the media your plant is in to see what they use but most growers use some combination of sphagnum peat moss, perlite, and sand for sundews. The most important factor for any combination of those three ingredients that you choose is that it isn't fortified with fertilizer. That'll kill your plant.

    1:1 ratio of peat moss and some sort of aggregate (perlite or sand) should work.
    If you can't find any fertilizer-free peat moss and perlite you can also just put it in long-fiber sphagnum moss.

    Yea, cali carnivores is known to have some strange happenings.

    To me, it looks like a mixture of bad soil, too much water and (maybe) too cold?

    Give it a new repot and some light, should be good to go.

    I didn't see any mention of this, so forgive me if I overlooked it. Was this a quick decline (over night) or a lengthy decline (few weeks)?
