Give them time! They do not look too bad yet IMHO. The Butterwort looks fine right now as does the VFT. Just remember the VFT is NOT an indoor plant.

Have patients!

Just time and light and they should perk up.

First off D. adelae prefers shady conditions and if you are giving it as much light as the Dionaea then you are burning the leaves. Try placing some frosted glass or shade cloth in between the lights and the adelae or move it away from the lights.
