This plant likes direct sunlight,the soil can not be too soggy as other Drosera. and the plant likes a very hot weather.

I think its too late. Is there any chance that it will revive?

The soil is a mixture of perlite and coco peat. The plant is placed in indirect light and receives about an hour of direct sunlight. I was afraid to put it in direct sun because it just arrived a few days ago and it's newly transplanted.

The plant arrived to me a few days ago. The plant is placed in an indirect light since i was first trying to acclimitize it. The medium is composed of cocopeat and perlite.
