    I was cursing like a sailor....trying to think WHO or WHAT could have done it..

    Deer? no - pitchers would just be gone....there are shreds everywhere.

    Cat? Possible...but why?

    One of the KIDS?!? definate possibility...need to invest in a small coffin.

    Nope. None of the above. I discovered the perps back for MORE the following moring. I am going to dust off the ol' pellet gun and have some squirrel stew.

    There was one touching thing that happened out of all this. My four year old started to cry because Daddy's plant got messed up....and she knew how mad I was, even though I did NOT let it out for her to see.

    btw i hope it can recover, if it recovers.

    Hey all, thanks for the comiseration and advice.

    The nep was sold to me as macfarleni, but I don't really think that's what it was. It is perhaps a hybrid of macfarlenei and sanguinea? Not sure....Maybe macfarlenei with ramspina? Sanguinea with ramspina?

    The pitchers are a DARK maroon....with almost black speckles on the outside....their a creamy green color with light maroon speckles on the inside. They have fuzzy-ish onthe outside. The largest pitcher was, oh, 6 or 7 inches from base to the top of the lid.

    The plant itself has dark green leaves with a maroon finish....and the mail leaf veins and stem is maroon.


    It will definately recover, since the monsters only ruined the pitchers. I just had to snip off the remains of the traps. The plant is fine. I may still bring it, since it does still have some good pitchers...it's just not the show stopper any more.

    I would be so mad! There's a lot of squirrels here, if one of them ever goes for my plants I'll get my pellet gun.

    I lose a lot of fruit to squirrels and would definitely start shooting if not for the 50 x 100 ft lot size here. Even a pellet gun is too much of a risk from the available shooting angles.

    may i suggest a paintball gun Bruce? should be nonlethal most of the time on squirrels outside of a head shot..........has done wonders for training the neighborhood cats that my yard is considered "no mans land"......squirrels may figure it out......if not it should be loads of entertainment if nothing else
