    OK I just found this very agressive fungis on my sarra. It has grown to several inches up the plant in only a few hours. It is white and foamy and stinks. What is it, what does it do, and will cleary fungiside kill it

    thanks all

    Nope, This one is sort of foamy and disolves on contact with water. My pet spider mite webs usually don't disolve when I spray them down, they are basically the same as a spiders web. If these are mites there of a type I'm not familiar with.

    thanks
    joe

    I'm trying to find it on the internet but not having much luck. Anyone know of a good site with pictures??

    Fantastic, a slime mold!! never seen one for real. they are almost animal-like in that they move quickly over substrates and organise themselves into structures for reproduction. I doubt it would harm the Sarracenia, watch and appreciate.

    sorry gardenofeden, but it is human nature to destroy what we don't understand, and that thing was giving my sarra nightmares.

    Im not sure if thats a slime mold, slime molds have several stages in thier life span, from spores, they are a dull yellow to clear color, I retained a slime mold before and watch it move, it looked like flubber [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] then the slime gets to its second stage or "flubber" stage, then they turn white and fuzzy and release thousands of thousands of spores, just my 2 cents [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ,
    Kevin (p.s. i would remove of it!!!!!!!!!!!, or remove and take a sample and watch ooze&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
