Subject: What's Killing My Drosera This Time?

A while back, I almost killed my D. Binata, by using untreated water
from a well (too limey round here). I went back to pure rain water and
the plants quickly recovered. Now, they're dying again. As each new leaf
reaches 10 to 15mm, it turns black and shrivels. My plants have no
leaves - just shrivelled, black threads.

I gave them a shot of fungicide, but with no effect.

Any ideas? They look so sad.
