I've had this cape sundew for years now, and last year it turned into an ugly stump when I put it outside for some reason. I moved it back inside under my Yescom 225 and it grew back into several plants and looked nice again.
This year I slowly moved it outside during the spring and acclimated it, and it looked nice, but once again now that summer weather is hitting it's starting to look awful again. Acclimation woes, or is my deck just not the right place to keep it?
Should I just keep it inside from now on? It's a shame if I have to because it catches so much bugs outside.
I've got a second cape sundew as well that I've only ever grown indoors, and for some reason it's ALSO turned into a stump for no reason. Looks exactly like what my previous sundew looked like when it was outside, only this time only grown inside. It's still green and making weird growth, but just looks horrid.
Conditions: Georgia, 7b zone, grown outside on my south facing deck, constantly in the 76-80 f range lately. LFSM, white plastic pot, bottom watered with distilled water.
