    Warren,

    I thought about lichen as well, but does it being limited to the underside of the leaves eliminate that as a possiblity?

    might email the fungus doctor LOL

    defintely keep us posted PAK, very interesting

    BTW, trichoderma has shown to be effective to some degree against every fungus tested so far, However, depending on the fungus some trich strains do work better then others .... thats why Ive always made up my "cocktail" just to cover my butt...

    Ive not used any fungicides in over 5 yrs now I guess, and ya know.... its just not an issue any more

    I did think about a lichen too but...why/how would I get that growing on a pot of cephs indoors?

    I wish I had a working camera. I did have the "sheet" I pulled of the worst affected leaf. It looks like an exact replica of the leaf.

    I used to have a very uncomplicated plant life. I never had any problems other than the squirrels. Now I have "white-out", aphids and mealy bugs. And an occasional scale.

    LoL. This sounds like me (w/ a few differences on the particulars). I fight & conquer one nasty threat to my CPs - do a multi-month 'sigh', relax and then ..... bam. I get hit with something I've either never had or at least, not seen for years. Gotta stay vigilant ....

    Based on the fairly regular periodicity & the devastation to my plants (& my psyche), I'm mulling the possibility of stopping incoming plant trades and just trading for seed or sterile flasks... I doubt that I'll actually get to this point but each time this occurs, it becomes more of a realistic option - especially as my collection has over 95% of the Sarrs I've ever wanted ....
    All the best,

    I chipped all of it from an adult pitcher and then sprayed the pitcher front with neem oil and it hasn't been back. (knock wood)
