Okay, I will try that, thank you. :)

Submerging drosera in water does not work too well (pest control wise), as they have a tendency to trap air in the leaves, allowing some bugs to live.

If you are going to submerge it, though, then I would do it for longer than a few minutes just to be safe.

Good luck!
