My sundew is an annual and has been blooming for more than a month, now it's growing the 4th flower stalk already but I noticed the leaves don't look nice anymore. They're curved and has no dews. Is this because the plant is exhausted from making seeds? Should I stop it by cutting the flower buds off? I have enough seeds already now I just want the plant to flourish.

I can't really help with that because I'm not as knowledgeable with that problem. I would stop the stalks though if they're coming out malformed. How's the rest of the plant?

What is the species? Burmannii? Sessilifolia? Indica or indica group?

Do you have a photo?

If it's an annual, it is normal for the plant to grow, flower profusely, and then die.
Lifespan can sometimes be prolonged by feeding the plant heavily.
If conditions have changed for the worse, (temps getting colder, light level decreasing, etc) reversing these changes might extend the life of your plant.

To give a better answer, more info is needed.
