alright. i didnt want to talk about this before i knew it was a serious problem... 3 of my sarrs have been affected but an odd disease.... these are the only 3. 'Dixie Lace' 'Judith Hindle' (both now dead) and S. leuco 'red' x 'okee giant' (excellens). the first 2 i had over winter. the latter i got recently.
First off, 'Dixie Lace'. this was a multi-crown mature sarracenia. only 2 of the 6 points were green and living when spring came around. these 2 point got to the first new leaf...halted growth and died off...for good.
Next, 'Judith Hindle'. i got this plant form an online nursery at the beginning of last december when it was actually warm. it went through dormancy fine. it woke up with my other plants fine. main growth point woke up... then only made a gimpy waking up leaf. it stopped. it made 2 off shootsthey started growing and were green. one on one side the other on the other side. a week afer they both stopped and a whole half side of the plant turned brown. the other side made another off shoot then the both halted and within a few hours... turned brown and it died. i woke up this morning. it was fine and green. i got home at noon and it was brown and was dead.
Lastly, S. x excellens. this plant came in the spring. wide awake. it kept growing...at a 1 inch pitcher so far turned black...and rotted. 3 more off shoots. 1 rotted over the weekend. i still have 2 left.
what the heck is going one with my plants!?!? what can i do to stop it! i dont want it to happen to ANY of my other ones.
PS. before you ask. yes they were dead. sweet potato color on the inside of each growth point...
