When I first got them they seemed happy they were putting out growth and getting dew. Over the past week and a half I've seen them slowly decline nothing has changed distilled water, same grow light, same media (lfsm). There is no more dew and the tips are turning black so I thought maybe it was getting too much light so I distanced it more and still having the same problem.

What am I doing wrong? I've had zero luck in keeping capes alive so far and seeing as they're called weeds I'm losing hope.

Thanks for any help!

Usually no dew means it's not getting enough light, which is weird because even the filtered light through a window is usually enough for Capes.
I would maybe move it to a spot where it gets natural sunlight if possible.
Good luck.
