    I hope it is not dying, but my Sundews do not go dormant , I think the Venus Fly Trap does ? I lost one of the cube kids before I started putting holes in the cube bottom .
    The others out grew the cube of death and were re potted just lifted out and put in a larger pot with new Spag added . Gin
