    I agree with Frilleon...from what I can tell it looks like maybe a case of the inside growing faster than the outside of the leaf for whatever reason, so it split the outer tissue. Keep an eye on it, but I wouldn't worry.

    When using neem, do you just barely spray the plant, or is it okay to drench the plant with neem?

    I have never used neem before, and about 2 years ago I used Malathion and I guess I got a little carried away with the product and burned all the leaves from my CP's. I don't want the same thing to happen again. Thanks.

    I use neem all the time with no ill effects. One thing I have heard is you can get neem that is not pure neem. Make sure it's pure neem like Einstein oil. It's cold press 100% neem oil. I use this on a regular basis. I also use coco wet as a wetting agent with no ill effect either.

    Thanks everyone for replying so quickly. I'm going to do the atypical thing and wait for another pitcher to grow and decide then. But just in case, I bought a bottle of 100% neem oil if it turns out to be thrips. I'll also quarantine this little rubra for further inspection.

    THANKS EVERYONE! I'll post an update in a couple weeks with results (promise).

    Make sure you follow the directions on the bottle, if it needs diluted or not. The first time i used neem in the garden I burnt my skin and a whole row of bean plants by not diluting properly.

    Rubra Update!

    Being the persistent/paranoid Sarr grower I am, I've scavenged the plant for any sign of pest. I found a few of these guys running around. Thrip?
