Drosera indica is a strictly annual sundew. With 15 cm long leaves you
must have a mature plant. Plants I have grown will always grow to full
size then immediately flower, then set seed and promptly die. There is no
hope of rejuvenating the plant by repotting as can be done with most
other sundews. Leaf cuttings always fail. Sorry to tell you this, ... I
hope you collected seed : (
