Hey all,

I'm STILL having issues with my sundews struggling indoors under my Yescom225 growlights. I honestly have no idea why they're struggling so hard.

I have two sundews that are struggling, a cape sundew that used to be huge, and 3 spatulata that were growing great then suddenly decided to stop making dew during the winter, started turning super ragged, then recently started growing again but are making really weird "bulbs" that should turn into new leaves but instead stays in bulb form?

Its around 70-75 degrees inside my house. The plants are under 14 hours of growlights, and are around 8 inches under the lights themselves. Humidity is 50-60% right now.

The motherplant of the spatulata and another cape sundew nearby are doing perfectly fine under the same growing conditions, which is why I'm so confused.

I've included images below.
