There also seems to be conflicting opinions on whether or not to cut the flower stalk of my drosera, because it is the middle of the winter. Any advice on the pros and cons would be greatly appreciated.
One more random question...How long until I begin to see "dew" on it? I planted it in its own pot now, and it is getting a lot of light.
Ahh the springy flytrap syndrome(not a technical term), they often curl their leaves around the rhizome when barerooted and will resist setlling. I usually end up using a bit of brute force poking it into its new home and squeezing the media tight around the rhizome, eventually you can get it stuck in, it will soon recover and hold its position as long as the main part of the rhizome is buried it will have no problems.
You can get the dew back in a day or two but can sometimes take a few weeks depending on the conditions.
