Hello all,

There is a fungus problem with my CPs now. The fungus concerned is this mould-like, powdery substance which attacks the bases of dead growth. It seems to have affected my Sarracenias the most. I think it's botrytis.

Basically, my plants are in my garden, so air circulation ought to be good. But the plants still keep getting attacked by the fungus! Local climate is tropical but there's been lots of rain lately.

I'm using captan but I suspect my first attempt involved too low a concentration of captan cos I didn't see the fungus disappear. Now I use 3 grams or so. Should the resultant solution, after being mixed with Captan, be creamish in colour?
