Agreed. That type of sundew likes a lot of heat. It's one of the few plants I keep out in direct sun out here. Mine had split after it went dormant so I brought them in and put them in a grow chamber with heat mats to keep them going through winter this time. Where it's at right now registers at 90 degrees F.

Congratulations Im happy to hear its bouncing back. No, water doesn't need to stay on the leaves.

Aphids tend to attack weak or new growth after they are repotted. At least you noticed early on. That said though check your other plants and make sure they're not hanging out or they'll keep coming back.

Ok! Will take note, hopefully didnt spread.. Image

O and i didnt update those flytrapper, they are still surviving, slowly, but patience is the way...

The centre pot on the left is a baby found under my old main pot, think it grew late
