    Looking for P. Aphrodite

    I recently lost mine due to brownings heart disease. You can look on my list for what I have to trade, but I primarily have spares of Drosera filiformis and Drosera prolifera. I also have some small flytrap typicals.

    I would prefer something fairly established.

    Here is a link if you would like to read up on it:

    Thanks for the link on diseases. I noticed there is one about "holes in the leaves". As I recall someone was asking about this problem in the Pinguicula forum - the culprit appears to be fungus - Borytis or Trichoderma. I kid you not.

    I lost a Pinguicula cyclosecta to the browning heart disease.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    NAN -

    I too have lost a few. I had one ping that started getting these mysterious brown dots that looked like rot but it was a very, very slow death. It seems to actually start in the leaves and then move to the crown. Needless to say, I felt helpless.
