Hi! I recently bought a sundew and It took 4 days for it to get here. I’ve been trying recover them but I’m not really sure what to do. Today I noticed some of my leafs are turning red. I read that this could be a sun problem but I was wondering if someone could take a look at it and give me some tips ..

They're right, Drosera look pretty rough after shipping most of the time. No dew, looking a little haggard etc. I second that, as long as you give it enough light and keep the soil moist enough (distilled or RO water), the plant will make a comeback. I've put my capensis through the ringer. I also have some seeds forming that I was going to donate (Alba,big pink (may not be fertile), and typical) but it appears theres a surplus :lol: The alba is a monster and putting out it's third flower stalk. Vigorous would be an understatement loll. So if for whatever reason it doesn't pan out, there are no shortage of seeds out there. I can give some as well. Good luck!
