    Same thing happens to my plants too, one day they are a little stressed but growing decently, and the next the whole bulb turns into mush and is dead... I'm pretty sure the worms on there are nematoads. I posted a topic on this a few months ago.

    How would parisitic nematodes reach a pot like that? I'd put my bets on insect larva myself.

    Probably fungus gnat larvae. Guessing there was a fungus infection and the gnat larvae were eating the dying plant tissue.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Good idea to pull the plant completely out, wash the rhizome, and replant with new peat. I don't have the fungus gnat problem here. Have worse troubles with cutworm. And they can devastate many plants in short order.
