    It's currently growing on the north side of the house. It gets pretty bright non direct light all day and direct light for about 4 hrs in the PM. 70-90% humidity depending on the day.

    Here's a pic of the setup

    I had a persistent white/beige fuzz on my Cephalotus and Sarracenia. It would leave red bruises on the pitchers where the fuzz was. I got rid of it with systemic fungicides like Cleary 3336 or tebuconozole. Neem or hydtogen peroxide would control it for 2-4 weeks. Sulfur 1-2 months. Trichoderma only made it worse - uncontrollable with Neem or sulfur. That's when I brought out the big guns - systemic fungicides.

    Thanks guys for the advice . I do have a question though, where do you typically find fungicides like Cleary 3336 or tebuconozole? I haven't been able to find it at the local stores. Is this something I should probably be buying online?

    Cleary's isn't a consumer level product so you won't find it on the shelves. Try an agricultural supply. There are a few places online that sell it but the minimum amount they sell will cover many acres. Same goes for Agricultural supply. And they may not ship it to your state. Tebuconozole is available at most garden centers as Bayer Advanced Disease Control for Roses, flowers and shrubs.

    Thank you! This seems to have done the trick
    With the Neem it would be back full blast within a day or so but I sprayed it two days ago with the Bayer Advanced and there's still no sign of the mildew.

    Phew!

    Very happy I found this thread and can see your progress with your ceph.
    I got mine about a month ago and after several weeks of shock (cross country to deep LA south heat/humidity) and a loss of all but one pitcher, I'm seeing new growth!
    Keep up the good work!

    Well, the mildew is gone but Kermit isn't too happy about being sprayed. It was my fault though, I think I sprayed too much and all the leaves got burned
    Contrary to what he looks like in the pics he's not completely dead. I hope he pulls through despite his horrible owner......
