    That's bizzarre, Virtigo... I would suggest leaf cutter ants, but you probably don't have them where you live, and, also, if it were them, they would carry the leaf fragments back to their colony, not just leave them laying there... hmmmmm... this is wierd... BTW, if this ever happens to me, and it turns out to be squirrels, if I see them doing it, they're going to recieve ample amounts of pain. Squirrels are the only animals ever to exist that I seriously don't like. DON'T YOU DARE GET NEAR THAT GREENHOUSE, YOU FLUFFY-TAILED LITTLE @#$%^&*!!!

    That's truly bizarre. Were the pitchers fully formed and open, or were they still closed and growing (i've noticed that the pitchers inflate a bit before opening, maybe it got too big too fast before it could open. But then, it would open before exploding). I would really suspect neighborhood kids, since this is the first time I've ever heard of it happening and if it were natural the phenomenon would've been documented a bit better. Thankfully I don't have to worry about evil neigborhood kids, but I may have to worry about my roomate should his opinion on CPs not match my own.

    Sorry about your pitchers. are the plants themselves okay? (Huddles protectively over his Leucos and Purps).

    If they weren't opened yet, maybe it was too warm for them and something chemistry happened inside. U know, like... It got hot... *shrugs*

    You feel me?
