    I know... the contrast is stark. I'm wondering if maybe it's a lost cause at this point...

    What do you mean what conditions is it in? It's an indoor plant and it's been in both North Carolina and Virginia, so subject to the temperature fluctuations of each (I didn't have a heating unit in my dorm, but it never got extremely cold, either), but it's never been exposed to the elements or any extreme weather conditions if that's what you're asking.

    Yes, actually. I don't think it's the water, though... I've been using the same water for all of them and my other two carnivorous plants (a drosera capensis and Ultricularia sandersonii) declined in the move, as well, but not to nearly the same extent and, since setting up the grow light and the humidifier, my drosera capensis is looking healthy again, whereas before it was droopy and lacking in stickiness.

    My drosera capensis looked dead a few weeks ago, but since I've made changes it has come back with a vengeance, which is why I found the lack of improvement in my sick hamiltonii so surprising:




    Are the capensis just a hardier plant, with a better come back rate?

    Now, my Ultricularia sandersonii declined as well, developing a dead patch where before it had flowered, but I'm not so worried about it because there's still other green growth that hasn't really shown any positive or negative change:



    As for the before pics for these two:



    So, overall, I'm not inclined to think it's a water issue (though I could be wrong), since all three plants have had different come back rates.

    All those plants have been in seriously bad conditions at some stage. It looks like you have begun to rectify that. Now it's a matter of wait and see how they progress. Don't go messing about doing anything else, just keep them as you are doing now.
