    maggots in my sarrs

    So this is a gross little issue I hadn't seen yet. Apparently one of the many flys one of my plants caught was expecting when it fell in. I came home today and gave my plants a once over just checking to see if everything was ok. I saw some weird bumps on the inside of one of the Sarrs and deciced to take a closer look. What I saw was a really gross sight of a bunch of little maggots attempting to climb up out of the plant.

    Since they slither for lack of a better term, it looks like they are going to get out. I was wondering if they pose any threat to the plants. Or if the only threat is that its really really gross. lol

    It's good news for the plant! Flies lay eggs in pitcher, maggots hatch, plant gets to eat fly AND maggots.

    It's not pleasant, but leave them be.
