    Hey, all-

    I have recently planted this S. purpurea in my mini-tote-bog. Today, I have noticed several holes in the smaller pitcher of the purpurea. I presume it will be fine, but want to double check. I can't see anything wrong with the other plant in the mini-bog- a S. Judith Hindle. However, I have some VFTs next-door to the mini-bog, and I think a couple traps have been taken off by something...



    Not sure, and sorry for lack of info, and bad photos!

    Thanks~

    slug maybe, to keep slugs out put a line of honey or somthing really sticky all the way around the edge of the crate and then heavily sprinkle salt on. Or just have a shallow tray that your crate sits in and fill it with salt.

    Or place a shallow dish/container filled with stale beer almost flush with the surface of the media near your plants. If it's slugs, they'll go for the beer and drowned instead of your plants.

    I used to do this for my strawberry patch and then I found out about Baker's yeast and sugar. It was a whole lot cheaper than buying beer.
