Drosera leaves browning quickly

by Druid_at_heart » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:02 am

I recently bought a drosera (it doesn't tell me which one it is but I'm assuming the one that isn't very red), I know not to give it fertiliser and only rain water and I know it likes light and being in about 18°c.

When I bought it it had some brown limp leaves but I thought I could fix it as the care sounds fairly easy and I have a slight black fly issue in one of my houseplants.

It hasn't produced any due ever to my knowledge, and now even more leaves are turning brown and limp, it has very few leaves left and I don't want it to die.

Be sure to keep it sitting in rain water all the time. It should never dry out. Please post a picture if you can, there are many factors that could be the cause.
