Did they bloom? If so, the first leaves after the flowers are a bit short. The plant spent a lot of energy on the flowers and doesn't have a bunch left for the leaves at this time.

They did not bloom. I'm thinking that it could be something with the conditions, because I have two of them side by side, and both are doing the same thing.

How long have you had them under that photo period. I found that Dreamsicles under my lights forced themselves into dormancy with no change of light or temperature. I'm not sure why.

I've caught my rotundifolia do the same, actually. Maybe the plant knows it's been so long since it grew hibernacula and it's time to go dormant, even without any changes?

Those plants of mine grew hibernacula, went dormant, and then woke up, all under similar photoperiods and temperatures. (While my madagascariensis plants took over the pot)
Plants are surprising sometimes. It's a shame VFTs and sarrs won't do that too, that'd make things a bit easier for people who can't have them outside for winter!

Umm... probably since I got them. About six months.

That sounds a little like root rot to me. I could be wrong though since I’m not as experienced in sundews.
