    I have an oreo x leuco that has been having diffuclty this year... There is white specks as if the green pigment has been removed also there are some browning sections of the leaf. I've checked it thouroghly for pest and have even spayed it with ortho but it still seems to struggle. I have one other sarra (psitt x leuco) slowly begining to show the same signs. Also one "Judith Hindle" that only sends up wide leaves with very small pitchers.
    any ideas?

    Pictures would be nice, and even then its hard to tell if its a visur or not. There are labs that will test for visures for a small fee. I don;t remember any off hand, and have only looked into it for orchids not CPs sorry.

    How much and what type of light. Could the "white specks" just be white areas from the leucophylla parentage. Browning sound like low humidity or high salts in the media. A wide leaf with small pitchers sounds like insufficient light. More details please....

    With the amount of leucophylla in those crosses, I'd expect the pitchers to develop white specks! The more sun, the more white you should see in fact!
    The old pitchers will turn brown over time as well, but new pitchers sometimes develop white spots if they have eaten a lot. It's nothing to worry about in this case.

    Okay, I have a simular problem. It almost seems like Powdery Mildew, all over, but not thick like on a rose. My tips are browning out and new growth is contorted. I use only distilled and rainwater.

    Here is what it looks like, any any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks
