SundewMidlander Posted June 1, 2020 Report Share Posted June 1, 2020 Hello, I'm very very new to this, I've been a sundew owner for 2 days! I've sadly already got a problem with one of them, a drosera binata, and would really appreciate some help before it gets any worse. I looked in the forum already but couldn't find a post to help. Thanks in advance for any tips. I've got a mature drosera binata 'pink flower' which is developing black tips on some stems. Most of its stems are also lacking any dew at all. (See pics - note pics aren't in its normal location.) It's in a pot about 15cm tall and 20cm wide. I'm watering it with pure water and it's standing in a bowl with a bit of water in. It's in a mix of moss peat and perlite from the nursery I bought it from. It's by a big window and is getting mostly direct sunlight from dawn til midday, thereafter good light but not direct. Temp so far is probably around 18 degrees C at night and 22 during the day. It was posted to me and so spent about 3 days in total darkness while being delivered. Could the black tips just be stress from the journey / adjusting to its new conditions? I've also got a standard drosera binata in the same conditions and it looks fine. Thank you for your help!
