    First pitcher is just dying off naturally due to old age.

    If you're getting deformed pitchers, it looks like an insect problem. Spray with insecticide.

    I've had very good success preventing AND treating fungal issues with trich. Had it on a lot of my new neps. I suspect it was dormant and kicked into high gear thanks to plants weakening as a result of shipping. Didn't really think it was doing too much damage other than very unsightly red blotching. After a treatment of trich, each new leaf got progressively better followed by huge growth spurt. Treated many different plants all with similar success. Have since used it as a preventative and don't really have much issue on pretty much all my sarrs, neps, cephs and helis. May not be as quick acting as a systemic fungicide, but I rather go slow and easy on the plant and be more natural if I can. I don't use on dews.

    Your results may vary.

    I googled Trich and got something I never asked for.

    Can I get a full name?

    Trichoderma. Its basically a fungi that kills the bad fungi and is usually used for when Heliamphora's arrive from nurseries in the UK...etc so their roots don't get infected.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
