My Drosera indica is bent down now after it was knocked off by strong winds and a short rainfall few hours ago (strong winds are more common around Chinese New Year IDK why). Will it stand back up again without me doing anything?

Thanks,

Thanks. I was thinking about using bamboo skewers too :D but I was afraid that it'll damage the roots since it's pointed and big. What do you use to tie them together?

I put 3 or 4 skewers around the plant so no matter which way it wants to lean, 2 of the skewers will support it.

I don't tie anything to anything.

I have never had any trouble doing it this way.

Here's a shot of a 6 inch pot of Drosera finlaysoniana with a Bamboo Skewer fence.

These guys gave me 13 inches of growth in one season. (Of course they were outside and devastating the local fly population to grow so big and strong.)
