    Maybe you all can help me. I have this N. ventricosa that has developed some odd characteristics. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    It has begun to produce these wierd protuberances that seem to grow out of the pitchers. I've tried picking them out...but they just grow back! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] When I do pluck them out...one of them gives me a little electric shock...another one makes a soft sound like finger picking on a guitar...another one makes little laughing sounds likes its told a funny joke...and the other one makes a noise like "I'll fix your computer." Its really quite unnerving!

    I am at my wits end! I just don't know what this could be...a fungus? A strange mold of some sort? Is it a mutant plant or something??

    Here is the plant...if anyone has any suggestions as to what might be causing this abberation, I'd appreciate it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]



    Should I break out the Cleary's??

    Hi Suzanne,

    This sure is a disturbing pitcher picture! I believe that Cleary's will not work for this abberation. However, I am certain that RamPuppy's mallet will do the trick of you want them removed! If however you want to continue feeding this plant, try some cheeseburgers, pizza, fresh veggies, and perhaps candy instead of the normal fly diet.

    Hope this helps.

    Naaa, I think it's a fungus. Looks like it has already taken over this plant. I think you should destroy this plant immediately, before it spreads to the rest of your collection. Burn the plant, the soil and the pot, just to make sure this hidious fungas doesn't survive and pop up in another plant.
    What ever you do don't breath the smoke!!!!
    Is this one of the plants you got from Lowes yesterday?

    Hmmmm...I wonder what would happen if I breathed the smoke?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I think Snowy might be right. It might be the Plant of Wisdom! Maybe if I lit a pitcher and inhaled I might get infused with some of that incredible knowledge.

    I think its a purdy plant in spite of its odd affliction. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Uhm... I don't know? Perhaps: "No comment."?? I think this may be one of the first time I was without something to say (on the forums).

    AH HAH!! I just thought of a comment. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I guess the people who didn't post pictures were the smart ones. As they haven't been posted online in odd manipulations. Hmm... I bet I could find something fun to do with one of the many that PAK has posted. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
