fuzzy growing tip

I just got a sundew and its growth tip, the apical meristem I guess, is white and fuzzy. Is this normal or is my plant moldy? I have good air circulation around all of my plants.

Can you post a picture or Email me one? What kind of sundew is it? Is it maybe a D. adelae or spatulata?

Adelae... normal

It's a fuzzy pic so if you want to be sure, check out my site, I've got a couple adelae... but I'm pretty sure it is.

I see a cube bottom under it, so I'm guessing you got it at Lowes or Home depot?

That's the "Lowes cube of death"! I'd recognize it anywhere!
