    *pix added* one of the new pitcher on my ceph is turning black.

    so I took a look at my ceph like everyday. and noticed one of new pitcher's lid is turning black. rot maybe? should i cut it off? if so where at? right at the pitcher or close to the "trunk"?

    Picture? Can't diagnose the problem without a pic :/.


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

    Like others have said, Photos please!

    If the pitcher went from green, to yellow, then brown to black, and the growth point isn't brown or black, then it is possible that the pitcher has just aged and died. Then yes, carefully cut it off.

    But if we don't have a photo, and it's something else, my words are useless tripe.

    Photos Please!

    pix will be uploaded tomorrow. just been too busy today. the edge of one of the new pitcher looks black, but not too worried. got it from someone who's been growing cephs for 30 yrs. he says it's fine.

    here are the pix. it's the tiny new pitcher that's coming out. you can see the misshapen lid that is sort of black/grey around the edge of the lid.

    Looks like physical damage to me... maybe some bug has had a chew at it?
