problem with a Drosera rotundifolia?

Hello all,

I just recently bought a D. rotundifolia when, when I bought it,
it had
caught a gnat and all the sticky pads where moist and dewy as it should
be. I removed the packing dome and placed the pot in a large container,
higher than the sides of the pot and filled it with water half way up
the pots side. Then, from reading a cp book saying that for indoors you
may want to mist the plant with water to keep them dewy and so I did and
after a minute or two, the dewy tentacles dried up? Is this a shock
reaction to it being moved from the store to my room or should I have
not sprayed it?
