Very nice Looks like your sundews could use more light. You might consider puting them just a few inches from the lights (prop them up on a small box or something). That's how my D. aliceae is set up. It is robust with nice red color and lots of dew

Not saying your dews look BAD or anything, but they like a little more light than most of the other plants in your pics. They would look nicer and be more healthy and resiliant in more light.
The D. Aliciae is on a box outside of the grow rack, under the very edge of the light. I'm low on space, so when it got colder and I brought them inside they kinda got the short end of the stick.
It looks like you're doing a great job. I understand space limitations. I have an N. sanguinea that is outgrowing my growrack and I'm trying to figure out whether to trim it or where I can put it to give it enough light (my appartment windows have less than optimal light). I want to see it enter vining stage!
I am in no way trying to criticize. I just have a hard time not voicing my observations, whether they are helpful or not
No worries, I didn't think you were.
Most of my neps are pretty small now, but the few that have outgrown the grow shelf (or been pushed out because I got something new and exciting) have done pretty well by my window, even though it only really gets a few hours of good light. After I've updated my grow rack (someday...) I'm thinking about hanging a T8 by the window to help them out. I would totally say don't cut it so you can see it vine, but that's just me.
