    I don't have any dead pitchers on my plants. This is the first season I've had them, so nothing left over from the winter either.

    You know. We've had a very very wet summer up until a couple of weeks ago. That's about when I'd see some patches like this appear. And spiders (no little red mites) just love my plants. Thank you, whimgrinder. You've really set my nerves at ease. You guys are the best.

    Just because you don't see them doesn't mean anything.

    Mealybugs in the roots


    Mealybugs under dead leaf base: now you don't

    Now you see 'em! (dead leaf had been trimmed off, base remained)


    That white stuff around the seam of the leaf base means there are mealybugs in there even though you can't see them


    Those little spaces at the leaf base are where the females like to nest. I had sprayed a stream of systemic pesticide into these areas the day before which partially flushed these out. Otherwise you couldn't see them easily.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Whim called it..
    just minor mildew (mold) spots..no biggie.
    you could probably wipe them off with a damp paper towel, although at this time of year, there is no real need to do so..

    its been a humid summer around here, all the leaves on my pumpkin vines have virtually
    melted away from white powdery mold of some variety..
