The last one is actually a Filiformis Tracyi. Looking good. :) All of my capes are doing well. Except for one. My Giant variety that has never, ever, ever kept dew in the same growing conditions as the other capensis. Lol.

Yea i kno its a dew thread but i had to add him in there too!
I'm having a problem thoe, when food Gets caught in there tentacles they aren't rolling around it, the food evntually slowly but surely gets away I've even thrown ants on the arms and the next morning the ant still be there except all the way at the bottom of the arm with ALL the DEW dragged off of the tentacles? Why aren't they feeding?? My VFT ends up getting the slimy ant at the end of the day...

The dew thread sundew has cause a debate among carnivorous plant botanist whether to classify Drosera filiformis var. tracyi as a separate species from Drosera filiformis var. filiformis, & call it simply as Drosera tracyi.

I side to the group that want to separate it into a seperate species and just call it D. tracyi. The reason is that D. tracyi make foot long sticky leaves compared to those of D. filiformis. var filiformis, which make traps under a foot long. The tentacles of D. tracyi are white& shorter then those of the typical D. filiformis. var filiformis, which are longer & red under bright sunlight. Finally, the leaves of D. tracyi have more tentacles compared to those of D. filiformis. var filiformis.

Either way, once your D. tracyi or whatever you want to call it, reaches flowering size, it's gonna be a big plant.

Nice looking Drosera. When I had my king sundew, it only got its dew after I began using the tray method.

Sundews are beautiful, almost looking like they're covered with tiny diamonds.

We need more info. What type of water are you giving the plant? How much light does it get?

Sorry for not answering back. I give it distilled water. I give it about 4 hours of indirect sunlight. It has no dew. It doesn't even have any signs of red. It's tips are drying up including the new leaves. It is inside a terriarium with about 60 percent humid. Not sure if it's enough information also it's indoors in my kitchen. Picture is taking place outside

Take it OUT of the terrarium, it's not needed. Usually no dew means not enough light.

Will it be okay to leave it in my newly bought greenhouse out of direct sunlight even though it's 100 degrees hot outside?

Get it out of there. Air movement is important to all plants. It'll be fine. Just keep it in a bright spot OUT of direct Sun.
