So after the past several posts, my garden is only taking a decline.
It's not too much water, or too little. There's always about 1" of water in all of the trays.
Contrary to the overcast day, they typically get lots and lots of bright and direct sun.
I only use distilled water, or collected rain water.
It can't be mites, because I've killed those off with regular use of Neem. Soil Toxification was suggested by someone.
There's strange little black bugs in the soil which have been ruled harmless. I've recently discovered them crawling over the actual pitcher leaves though, in the dark hours. I trimmed off one dead pitcher and it was LOADED with those friggin bugs.
There's an overwhelming amount of various spiders. Orb weavers, jumpers, and a large wolf or brown recluse.
Pitchers are pruning and turning brown at the top, and these are relatively young pitchers that shouldn't be dying yet. There's the contortions of the Flava's newest pitchers. There's the wilted leaf, which scares me, as that's a sign of fungus, isn't it, for the whole leaf to collapse? There's also rotten, damaged spots in some pitchers.
I've had many of these plants for 3-5 years, I have a decent clue as to what I'm doing, and I KNOW this isn't right.
I'm sure everyone's tired of seeing me, but there's nothing in the Savage Garden that really explains what I'm going through, or on this forum. Everyone else is overwatering or has thrips. *puffs and wishes her plants had some obvious diagnosis* My Purpurea's newest pitchers are pale and frail.
