    This guy is an avid Sarra grower. He's dipped his plants in this stuff before. Still, we think it might have been a mixing error. I'll ask. I'll also ask if there is any way spray could have gotten over the fence. I'll also ask if it's on just one side. We sprayed them for mealies, light brown apple moth, and thrips.

    Llamas? Where did llamas come in?

He said he just used an organic pesticide, one hat he uses on his llamas without issue. There might have been a mixing error with the pesticide. All I know is that whatever it was happened very fast, and is kind of all over. It doesn't look like a pest attack.
    It is definitely not sun scald though.

    Stupid phone.

    Sarras, short for Sarracenias.


    All the damage is on the east-facing sides of the plants (not llamas). He uses a mix of water, soap, alcohol and oil. He's used it successfully on his Sarracenias, so we're leaning toward a botched batch of mix.

    ah ok that makes much more sense now

    I think the pesticide is a safe bet.
