Hi,
I'm new to CPs. I just got my Cape Sundew from the mail on Thursday and I was wondering when they can recover and start producing dews again. Right now it's under a T5 HO light (which I just got last night). I set a timer for 16 hours. It's in the tank that gets up to 80 degrees. I got it with (I believe) 1:1 peat:perlite from the flytrap shop website.

Thanks! :)

I agree. They will usually produce new day tentacles within a week or so with good water and light provided.these are very hardy CPs so you can't really do much wrong with them...give them time to adjust to life outside of a jiggled around package and you'll be quite surprised at how fast they'll recover :) Goodluck

I've only had one sundew shipped to me bare-root and it was already looking much healthier in about a week. After a month I couldn't even tell it had been bare-rooted.
