So... I poured water over my sundews and all their saliva washed off. Will that shock them? Do they recover quickly

Typically they'll recover it all within a couple days, especially if it's water. Other chemicals sometimes fry it out though, like pesticides etc.

sundews are prety hardy. i believe the fastest time a sundew regenerated it's dew was like 2 hours or something. yours should be back in a day or two unless it was an old leaf

Just distilled water. Was trying to get rid of some pests in the soil, so I tried drown my pot by pouring neem oil/water over the top of the soil. Not over the plants though, any contact the neem oil had with the plants was splash damage lol. A few hours later I was trying to flush the soil with distilled water so I poured gallons of but this time I was lazy about it and just poured the water everywhere. No more gel in the hair.

Most are new/young leaves. The plants are all recovering their dew now. Some faster than others.
