Sundew drying out

by Hodric » Thu May 21, 2015 12:58 am

Hi, guys.

My d. spatulata are drying. A small plant dried completely.

Is it too wet? Should I give them more light? What's wrong?

They are planted on live sphagnum moss covered with sand.

Thanks.

It looks like heat damage. Are they exposed to direct sunlight? Some of my sundews would get like that when the humidity was low and I had them outside.

I'm giving these plants only artificial light. There is a pygmy sundew in the same pot growing beautifully...
