So this isn't an issue for all of my droseras. I noticed certain kinds won't curls or produce enzyme before the rehydrated bloodworms dries out.

Does this mean the food I provided isn't being efficiently used? Should I consider spraying them with Maxsea?

Another easy way is just to mix up some Maxsea or other suitable water-soluble fertilizer and spray it on the leaves. Works great for pings and Byblis too. Make sure not to get it into the soil though, or you'll have algae.

That happens to my Drosera as well. So I just use MaxSea as my only fertilizer. I suspect misting with regular water would work too.
