they weren't the prettiest when they first arrived. i trimmed off alot of dead leaves. but i think that the spot they are in will be good for them.
Matt: i know you were saying i dont really need a terrarium... but i looked all over town and couldnt really come up with much. but i figured it wouldn't hurt. and if it doesn't work out. i can always just buy more.
so what should i do with my sundew flower stalk?
It looks like they are well on their way into dormancy. Most of the leaves and traps on my plants are also black and look very similar to your photos. My plants have stopped growing completely, at least as far as I can tell by looking at them. I can't see much growth over the last 2 weeks.
The reason the ones you got from David Conner look like one big mass of plant is because they haven't been out of tissue culture for too long. The plants I got from him looked the same and some of them didn't have much in the way of roots. It worked out well for me though because that mass of plant turns into several plants after 1 growing season.
I left the flower stalks on my sundew go ahead and grow. I've heard that they are hard to kill (D. Capensis), so I'm just letting it do its thing.
