I am a first time carnivorous plant owner. My sundew is developing brown spots on the, I guess, right below the head of the leaf (I don't know terminology if there is for them) and right up the middle of the heads. The dew is gone, and the leaves are curling inwards. I need help fast before it is too late!!!

Need more info. How much light does it get? What kind of water do you use?

It sits in my front window (faces west), lots of sunlight, and I use tapwater.

Too much Sun and tap water is killing it. Tap water is poisonous to carnivorous plants. Distilled or rainwater ONLY.
