    Critter Ate My CPs, Pooped on Deck Beside Them

    It was super windy this morning, and my mom woke me up telling me I was having plant problems with all the wind, that some of them weren't even in their pots. So I went down and was assessing the situation and saw some of the pitchers looked shredded. I said "I think these were eaten! This can't be from wind!" Then I turned and saw two piles of poop about 3' from my CPs on the deck.

    It's approaching winter dormancy time here in the Pittsburgh area, so I'm not as concerned about the eaten greenery as I am about them being uprooted. I tried to scoop a lot of the straight peat from the deck and put it back in the planter around the VFTs. The other pitchers there, I don't know what the potting media are, because those are the containers I bought them in. I don't want to put my plants into too much shock this time of year. But I need to read up on what I should put these guys in if I want to fill the pots back up properly.

    I don't like this one bit.

    You can see pictures here.

    Not sure on what kinda of consequences you may feel from the uprooting, but if you need media 50/50 of sphagnum and perlite would be the mix

    Those look like deer pellets. Do you have deer in your area?

    I don't know what kind of poop that is, but I'd recommend a Big Cat to protect your plants.

    EDIT: If it's a deer, you'll need bigger than a Big Cat...
