I'm sorry guys. I'm brand new to carnivorous plants. We had just bought our plants from a local seller on Sept. 13th. On the evening of Sept. 14th, we went out and bought some Betta fish flakes, and fed them to our sundew. Which was a bad idea, I now know. Because their previous owner kept them outside and so they were probably fed very recently.
It seems like the sundew isn't eating the flakes. I know it may be hard to tell from the picture, but the little dewy hands are holding on to the flakes, and the flakes do seem to be disintegrating. But now I'm getting worried because I've read that if you leave food on there for too long it will rot and ruin the leaves/plant. It's currently Sept. 16th, so it's been nearly two days since I tried to feed him.
Any help is appreciated. I swear that after this I will wait at least a month before trying to feed this poor guy again.
