    I'm finally running into some problems with my plants. First, a couple random pics, then they pics of the issues and a cry for help.

    Click on any image for full-size.


    Pinguicula primuliflora.


    The sphagnum chamber coming along alright.


    Now for the issues. First up, my Nepenthes ventricosa has some leaf issues going on.





    Any ideas?


    And the issue I'm more worried about: I discovered my minibog has an aphid infestation. I can only imagine it's because I took it outside a while ago for a photoshoot in the sun. Must have picked them up out there. But now they're everywhere. Again, click any image for full-size (useful to see the aphids in better detail).

    This is a shot I took before I realized:


    And this is it zoomed up. Notice the aphids on the Utricularia bisquamata stalks:


    Here's a screwed up leaf on a Drosera capensis (I noticed after the shot the aphid on the petiole in the background):


    The back of a Drosera capensis "Broad Leaf" leaf:


    The bugs themselves:



    Now I'm not familiar at all with pests, so please correct me if the following logic is unsound: They don't have 8 legs (they have 6), so they're not mites. They don't jump, so they're not springtails. And they look an awful lot like the aphids I see in macro shots on the web.

    Now, what the heck do I do with them? They're all over my dews, so I'm hesitant to try spraying anything on them. The first thing that came to mind was to attempt to fumigate it, but that seems extreme. The thing is, I've sprayed water on my D. adelae only to find them burned all to crap a few days later. >.<

    So far, chibae has recommended neem oil and seedjar has recommended diluted rubbing alcohol. Anything else?

    Please help? ;c

    Sorry to hear about the infestation. Sarracenia Northwest made this vid about insecticides for CPs:

    First up, Aphids!

    Get a bag of ladybugs for the aphids... they'll make quick work of it because they LOVE those guys!

    Watching that vid now, tommyr, thanks.

    @thez: That was my wife's first recommendation. I figured they might make quick work of the aphids, but the plants might make quick work of the ladybugs first! What'ya think?

    yeah... we tried tried the ladybugs in our greenhouse and they went straight for the sarrs. The praying mantis worked better.
