I hope you don't mind me popping back in here to ask you a question quick.. I took the suggestions about the water, light and the bag from above and have been doing so since Tuesday (the light since Wednesday). It looks like the sundew is turning slightly brown now. I read elsewhere that it could be that the light is too close so I backed it up some. Could there be another reason for this?
Also with the bag over it, should I be seeing any type of moisture on the inside of the bag at all? There isn't any but I don't know if maybe I poked too many holes in it or did something else wrong. I know it's only been a few days but I didn't want to wait too long to ask again.. Thanks for all your help!
Hey, not at all. That's what the forums are for
You actually do want some moisture inside the bag. It's a tell for if there is moisture in the air. If there isn't any, the humidity inside the bag isn't that high. Not to say there isn't any, but you should probably redo it. I don't know what kind of bags you're using but if it were me, if I was using a ziplock I'd keep it sealed, no holes. Open the bag once every day or two to recirculate the air, and then put it back in the bag. If you do it that way, you don't really need to tray water as the bag retains moisture for quite a while. I'd pour a small amount in the bottom for it to wick from time to time.
If you're using a clear bag from the top, I'd seal it around the pot with a rubber band and poke about 5 pinholes in the bag. I'd still check on it to make sure there isn't any mold forming. Poor air circulation will encourage it so it's good to keep an eye out. If it ate, the plants leftovers will eventually mold. I had that problem with some seedlings and I had to snip some leaves.
Discoloration is hard to judge without a picture. Light intensity can affect a plant's coloration, particularly if it's strong and its really close and the plant has been light deprived. I'd also be mindful of how much heat the light is generating. You're going to want to aim for some average (70-75ish) room temps and you can probably keep the bulb 8-10 inches away. It's possible some of those plants may not make it. They were in rough shape. Though if you're using clean water, have given it light, temps and humidity to ease it's growth while it tries to recover, you've honestly done everything you can do. Though I've had plants come back from certain death before. Re-bag it and let it do its thing.
