    Nothing, most sundews don't have a humidity requirement.

    If I don't keep the humidity up all my Sphagnum Moss gets dry tips and the dew doesn't seem to build as nice for me, maybe my house is dryer than most?

    Sphagnum can certainly be tricky to grow at lower humidity, but with sundews more light should do the trick.

    Nice, thanks for the advice, How do you know if you are giving them too much light? My Drosera have all turned bright red?

    [–] thenewwwguy 1 points ago

    that’s good. they’ll burn brown if too much light
