So many changes happening in my little garden and i'm a bit concerned. thanks for the input.

This Sarracenia has weird bumps on them

I am assuming this are from the sun? But i just want to be sure
Image
And this is just from the digesting of the insects?

What are this white powder-ish looking thing?

I assume this red are just part of the coloring? I thought hurrican creek is all white?

This droseras leaf are really deforming..... The weather lately has been okay and they sat out in 90 degree summer last season no problem too...

I would say most of that is normal. The bumps and that weird brown streak on the sarracenia look like some sort of pest damage to me but I couldn't tell you what's causing it. The sundews do look a bit ratty but they still have dew so I wouldn't say they're in any imminent danger. Perhaps they just need to be repotted?

About the Sars, they look fine. There is new growth, and that shows they are ok. The old leabes are drying up, and that's normal. Same thing happening with mine.
There some pest dammage, maybe from a slug or snail? A catapillar?
The Drossera look like they are dry. Did you have a heat spell with dry air?

The droseras definitely look dried out. Maybe too much sudden heat or light, don't stress about it, probably getting used to summer now that it's back
