Are my sundews sunburnt? (Picture attached)

by Jinglebells » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:02 pm

My sundews were just recently moved outside after being in all winter. The sun has not been intense and they only get direct light about 5 hours a day but they have still been left outside for the past 3 days.

Do these plants look sunburnt and if so, will new growth come in like flytraps or will they just die for good?

If not sunburn, what else might cause this? My flytraps also have been having trouble lately both inside and out so I'm trying to make sure the causes are unrelated.

Thank you

Looks a bit dry and burnt to me.

I’d try the water tray method and maybe slowly acclimate to outdoors.

Sometimes a quick move can cause this from stress.

I already use the water tray method and it just rained so I think they are plenty wet. My guess is sunburn. Unfortunately with my schedule I don't have a way to leave them out for just an hour and then increase daily. Hopefully the sun isn't too damaging and they will produce new growth that will be acclimated!

They do look a bit stressed right now, but they should recover and look better than ever after a bit. If you want, you can slowly acclimate them, and that is the best idea, but you could probably just wait.
