Help!! My sundew looks dry and unhealty

by Anthonyafuk » Sat Dec 22, 2018 4:54 am

It looks dry, unhealthy, and doesn't produce any dew. I use distilled water, and peatmoss. Also I plant the sundew indoor, I give a really bright LED and every morning I put the sundew near the window. I keep the moss moist everytime and the sundew still unhealthy, please help me.

Lol


Hey anthony'safuk it doesn't look like its dying necessarily, but it won't produce dew because well your light isn't bright enough. You don't need high humidity for them to do the Dew. I believe they have to be under artificial lighting with a minimum amount of PAR and I don't know what that number is sorry, but you haven't quite hit the mark yet. You can try getting the bulb closer ,but more likely your gonna need more lights. A LED grow bulb might do the trick Idk. What kind of bulb are you using now and how far away is it from your plants?

I didn't even notice that third plant in the foreground sorry. That's a drosera huh? If the leaves are that brown it might be getting root rot. You might want to dig into your lfm and have a peek. Otherwise Idk maybe a disease? I have no idea ,but I'm leaning towards the roots rotting.

Now that double bass pointed it out I see a sundew. Thought you posting vft pics and calling them sundews with long fiber sphagnum and calling it peat.
Anywho. It might be to close or not enough light
