    Does this look like aphids?

    I'm new to this type of damage, though I'm under the impression that it is caused by aphids. It is a S. Leucophylla x Flava...
    I inspected the leaves, but didn't see anything unusual.

    Anyways, thanks for the help!

    Does this look like aphids?

    Looks like pest damage. Use a systemic insecticide. Here is one of my plants from last year. I never saw any pests, but once I applied the systemic, the deformed leaves went away.




    Good luck!

    I recommend Neem Concentrate from Green Light. Got a jug of it today at Lowes.

    I looked at purchasing neem oil from lowes however the ingridents were 70% neem and 30% other. Was just nervous what the other 30% was and whether it was going to harm the plants.

    I believe that that "other" is mostly wetting agents to keep the neem oil mixed in with the water (because oil floats on water ), but I can't say for certain if it's safe-to-use on CP's.

    Consequently, pure neem mixed with just water has to be shaken up between sprays...

    Since its only a couple, starting out pitchers, it could always be the trance plants are in after dormancy. (sometimes)

    Yeah, I've had a few twisted pitchers, probably due to a frost we had in early May.

    Could be aphids as well though. No harm in spraying I suppose.
