    ok well the sundew still gives off new growth but it is on the way out- now the flytrap is still growing but still puts out some shots that turn black when they are still very small. should i just give up on these plants and get new ones

    You say the plants seem to be putting out new growth that later turns black. This makes me suspicious that your growing conditions are what is causing it. Since the plants seem to be on the way out anyway, I suggest you try repotting them in new mix. Just to be extra safe, I would plant them in only milled sphagnum peat. When you take them out of the current soil, carefully wash the roots in clean water and look for signs of insects or disease at the base. Also, I would make sure that the plants are not getting cooked by direct sun. Sometimes as the position of the sun changes, locations that were safe last month become deadly.
