    The new one has several dying leaves and many of the lower ones are quite limp. It's an impressive plant though - if it's vertical growth is anything to go by, it's a fairly old plant.

    I would have them hanging but I don't have anywhere to keep them like that inside and they can't go outside - much too hot in summer, far too cold in winter. It's hard enough keeping the leaves whole through the winter inside (that is what caused the necrotic spots on the old phal) they'd keel over in a jiffy outside.

    Sundews seem to be doing the best outside - they sit in a large semi-opaque crate and collect vinegar flies. Half of them are sulking at the moment though because I had to seal them up for two weeks while on holiday. The fungi loooved that; the half dozen D. auriculata didn't and have died.

    Important question: does this look like bacterial soft rot? It's soft, brownish, and appears to be getting bigger.
    It hasn't been in direct light. It hasn't been cold.



    Amputation is looking like a solid option at the moment.

    EDIT: I found something that looked suspiciously like spores on the underside - as a result, amputation has happened regardless of what it was.

    That does look like an infection.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Oh, the shots of the plants in the wild are very nice. Hope I get to go to Australia sometime and see some of your native plants in the wild.

    Welp. The big white phal is dying from some mysterious disease but the Ceph has recovered beautifully.
