    Grr Its time for the autumn Sudden Death season

    For some reason I am now finding that the start of autumn is when my plants start to keel over!
    Last week my big nutans giant collapsed along with another tequila! Them today I find my big woody tatei going limp & shrivelled. NOOOOO!






    Both the nutans & tequila were completely rotten at the base- though a few pitchers were still looking good. So did not pick up the problem as quickly as I should. The tatei had looked really good on Monday and had intended to photograph it. With this plant the base of the plant & roots still looked ok. And even after cutting up have still to find any rot. I will pot up these two sections of the woody stem and see how they go. None of these plants were together and particulary the tatei had been growing well.

    Wow! This is so odd - I lost a few plants in the early heat of summer but the others have rebounded well once it started to cool down -- very weird.

    No I water my plants from above when needed. I have had these last few plants quite some years. The tatei almost 10 years.

    From the CPUK thread on the same topic:
    I do use Trichoderma atroviride but ultimately if a plant wants to die it still does!

    I lost my Heliamphora heterodoxa x ionasii to what looks like a similar issue last season. I used Trichoderma as a preventative. I'm truly not convinced whether water levels make a difference. My best growing Heliamphora is kept at high water levels all of the time, but it also has very high light levels and is regularly flushed, so maybe that has an influence.?
