    I had a colony of orange Isopods (pillbugs) as my vivarium janitors but my vampire crabs also thought they made great snacks... now I have no isopods!

    Remove manually as many as you can find. Clean up any debris, dead matter etc. Diatomaceous Earth or pyrethrim are recommended controls.

    Although anything is possible, their existence in the pot may not be cause-effect for a decline. Years ago, I received some petiolaris from a grower and they were crawling with pill bugs. I asked him if he knew they were there & he told me that he encouraged them in all of his pots as they acted like little rototillers & kept the media from being anaerobic.
    All the best,

    I hear what you're saying - correlation need not be causality. I repotted the plants.
