    Today I looked beneath the leaves of the capensis and found white fluffy stuff on the moss and dead leaves which were buried underneath the new emerging leaves. My other Sarr also suffers from the same problem. I don't think the problem came from FEF, though the state in which the plants arrived could have contributed to the problem -- many dead leaves/pitchers, overgrown plants (which in some respects, is a good thing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ) in relatively small pots.

    I'd suggest that you look underneath the current growth and check if they're any white fluffy stuff or pests. I even spotted a snail! And pluck out those dead leaves... I think they will also cause pests to infest to the plants.

    Thanks...I don't think I have that problem, I repot my plants to avoid it...

    I think our main problems are not enough humidity and not enough sunlight. I'm going to test this hypothesis by exposing one of my sundews to full sun tomorrow...

    Wish me luck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The white stuff could either be fungus or mealy bugs, both of which would spell trouble for the plants. Get your fungicide and insecticide out!

    I decided to get somethg done about my capensis:

    1. I've shifted my capensis to a sunnier location
    2. I got rid of most of the dead growth
    3. I sprayed it with fungicide and pesticide

    And it's already getting better!

    There are about 3 new growth points which produce smaller, paler leaves but these have lots of dew. 2 of these points have also sent up flower stalks.

    The flower stalks I've seen on the plant in its unhealthy state before, so it's not a fair indication of its well-bring. But lots of dew on its leaves is new. I'm hopeful that it's recovering. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    But I can't say the same for my P x weser! The crown (or centre, whatever it's called) is brown/yellowish and the leaves peel out very easily. In fact, some have detached themselves already. The detached leaves have brownish centres, so I suspect the crown or roots of the plant is rotting away, no thanks to the heavy storms these few days.

    Any suggestions?
    On that note, does anyone know if FEF carries anymore Pings?

    Great for you ebeyonder! Hope that the D. capensis will do well.

    Strange about the P. x weser. I have not encountered problems with it yet, and there are two growths points now. Cindy had successfully rescued her plants before. Perhaps you could search for her tread on this topic. Or ask her directly!
