For the past 2 years I have noticed that my open tray D. aliciae plants start out blackened from its crown. Does anybody else experience this? What is causing it? The plants don't die and eventually stop doing that, I'm curious as to how and why.
Yes, that's exactly what I have been experiencing! Thanx![b said:Quote[/b] (vft guy in SJ @ Dec. 17 2006,5:17)]Something like this? Mine has done this for as long as I can remember. The plants are lush and beautiful regardless...

Open tray means not in a terrarium? I wonder if it is a "dormancy" thing. What are your temps like?[b said:Quote[/b] (jimscott @ Dec. 19 2006,8:33)]Yes, that's exactly what I have been experiencing! Thanx!
Mine is sitting, along with a bunch of other sundews, in a plastic storage container, open tray, with a fluorescent light over them. Happens only in the winter.
It can stand for being in a larger pot.
It's the ONLY sundew doing this.
