    Freeze damage or sunburn would be my guess. Either a possibility?

    Jim, is there any material left for pullings? I hope you did not loose anything not easily replaceable.

    Looks like sun shock. Were these grown inside then placed out in the sun ?

    COuld be a change of light or humidity. i've had many pings wilt after being changed from greenhouse to living room conditions, just like this.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Yes... but they've been outside for a couple weeks, now. I had them on a rack, under trays for a few days. Then they were moved to be in direct sun. Days later they reacted. If it was sun shock, they sure had a delayed reaction.

    Unfortunately, I did. The P. laueana looks like toast. However, in total coincidence, I took leaf pullings of it and some others, and got them started on the grow rack, inside.

    I tried removing the bad butterwort leaves and oddly enough the basal part of the leaves still had turgor to them and required the usual effort to remove them

    The last freeze we had was in April and the lowest overnight low was 40 F, last Thursday.
