A quick change to lower humidity and hotter sun can do that.

I hate to say it, but that might just be it. I noticed the leaves went from being bright, neon green to like this mushy faded green as well. It's more humid outside than inside, but I think I'll just keep my spatulata inside from now on, I feel like when I grew them outside they didn't like being under the direct Georgian sun that much compared to my growlights.

It looks like it is doing better! I don't know if this happens with Drosera, but I know VFTs sometimes flower as a last resort. I'm not trying to put you down and I think you're doing a great job. I'm just saying that as an fyi so you're not surprised if something happens.

When my spats/toks were near dying after getting watered with 700 TDS water, most of them shot up flowerstalks. :? I'd cut them off.

This would be like the 4th time I've cut off flowerstalks on this plant. He's such a problem child. :lol:

Might as well I guess, since he's recovering from heatshock anyways. Thankfully I took 3 leaf pullings from this plant and they're growing up nice and big and strong after propagating them in water. I feel so stupid honestly, it was recovering and super dewy under the lights when I repotted them the first time, should have just left them indoors.
