    Have you ever treated them with one of the Trichoderma based products?

    Powdery mildew I think and it does kill the plants if it gets out of hand.

    Brie if you want to try a more natural method: skim milk + water works. You need to spray it in the area, %10 milk to %90 water is fine though I've used more milk. It may be a bit difficult to spray a sarracenia thoroughly but it definitely works, you'll see them get better in a day.

    Generally mealybugs will be at the base of the plant or along leaf ridges, not on the more exposed areas and the lid.





    But it could be the residue from whiteflies.



    This photo is on iris and imagine it with all the creatures gone. I have not seen whiteflies on my Sarracenia.

    Funny, I just found the same powdery fungus on one of my Sarrs. I think Mickey is right in that this is simply something we should come to expect around August.

    Either that or you've all gotten a "carrier" plant from the same source.

    And even if you don't see any mealybugs they could be in the roots:

    Definitely not mealybugs in my case, I just bare-rooted all of my plants and moved them across the country.
