help with drosera venusta

sundewloverApril 19, 2008

I have got a Drosera Venusta two days ago and when I checked its leaves it did not have the sticky substance on it. Is this because I have to put it outside to let it get some morning dew? Or is it because it is still getting use to its new home?

most sundews I've had loose their dew when I get them home and or repot them. as long as its getting the correct environment and lighting it'll replace it.

But if the dew mixes with morning dew dont I have to put it outside to let it get some morning dew to make the substance?

I think it can make it on its own...
