So my drosera filfimoris tracyi leave are not growing straight is that normal? I thought they were supposed to be straight. Also I put an ant on the leaf and it escaped is that because the ant is strong? And my drosera alicaie leaves are turning brown it’s producing new growth through. But the new leaves are not producing glue. Why?

Spraying the leaves will remove the dew. 50 to 60% humidity should allow for more dew then what I see in picture. How many hours of light is it getting? What type of media and does it stay mostly wet or moist? There should be sand or perlite in media to allow for proper drainage.

I just started giving it 7 hours. In the morning it sits outside for at least 3 hours I bring it in because it gets too hot in the afternoon(yesterday it was 108). Then I put it on a windowsill in the evening. I keep it in a saucer of water. It is planted in a part peat, part pertile mix.

Im talking about the alicaie I leave the tracyi outside a lot and feed it ants. I would with the alicaie too but it doesn’t have any glue on its leaves.. it’s sprouting new growth so I’m hoping those will have it
