So I've had this cape sundew for about a week now, and a lot of the leaves were curled backwards when I got it. But since I've had it a couple more leaves are starting to curl backwards too. I keep them in an unheated greenhouse during the day, the greenhouse gets full sunlight almost all day long. The greenhouse is also not all the way finished(it has a part of a wall not put on yet), it stays plenty warm but gets pretty chili at night, so I bring them in at night. If we have an exceptionally cold day, I will just leave them inside under some lights we have. Is there a reason the leaves are curling backwards, is it harmful, will they go back, or is there any way I can keep it from happening?
