    Hi guys,

    Today I realised that my newest, emerging Ceph pitcher is slightly black. The very tiny forming pitcher, that is.

    I then proceeded to cut the rotted leaves of the Ceph and accidentally snipped out a part of a non-carnivorous leaf in the process. What was surprising was that the cut-line (for want of a better word) turned black on the leaf still attached to the plant. The severed portion turned entirely black in about 1 hr.

    So, two questions:

    1. Black pitcher - is this normal? I've sprayed some fungicide as a preventive measure.

    2. Black leaf - why did it turn black so quickly? It's almost as if there was some black stuff oozing out from the cut!

    Thanks!

    what kind of light and humidity is it in?
    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer
