    Sick Drosera (with photo)


    As you can see, my plant babe didn't take the transition to dorm life very well. I didn't notice until after it had declined that it wasn't getting enough sun from the window I set it up in front of -- when I was back home, though, it was thriving.

    I have since bought a humidifer for it and a grow light and I'm home on break, so I'm hoping it will recover, but I was hoping for some opinions on how good its chances look.

    PS. It's wet looking because I had just watered it before taking the photo. It's actually not very sticky, except for some of the few green parts that you see.

    That almost looks like frost damage to me. What sort of conditions was this pot exposed to? Did it ever completely dry out?

    I'm not 100% sure. I've been calling it a coccicaulis for simplicity's sake, but the website I bought it from said they thought it was some sort of hybrid. They weren't able to identify what, though, and there's nothing written on its tag.

    I'm not sure how it would've gotten frost damage... it's an indoor plant. I've kept it indoors both at home and at school, and I haven't been opening the window, either. The soil might've dried out once or twice when I got busy and watering slipped my mind, but for the most part.... no. I water pretty consistently, or I try to, anyway.

    From the condition of the moss it looks like there maybe something iffy with the substrate. Info on substrate and as said above by fredg and nimbulan would be helpful.
    Cheers

    I'm actually unsure regarding the soil mixture... I bought it from California Carnivores and since they ship their plants in a soil mixture specifically formulated for whatever particular plant you purchase I haven't repotted it, since. I'm relatively new to carnivorous plant keeping (I bought mine last summer), and I bought it this way because I didn't want to have to worry about soil composition. On their site FAQ, it says you should be able to go a year without repotting?

    Actually, not sure that's right... It might be a Drosera hamiltonii. My memory here is hazy.
