    For the past week, every single open pitcher on my three minors I got from NCBG have started to rot from the middle up/down because it caught almost up-to-the-rim flies in North Carolina, before I brought it home to Florida! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Now, the two biggest (two feet tall) pitchers are starting to rot as well! I'm going to lose all my pitchers, except for the one pitcher that is still developing! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I don't think this will ever happen again, atleast while it's still here in Florida, since Florida doesn't have anywhere near as many flies outside as NC does. But still, THIS IS SO SAD!!!!!!! Also, none of the pitchers ever produced any digestive juice at all. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Anyway, THIS IS SO SAD!!!

    THIS IS SO SAD!!!

    Hey FTG,
    I read somewhere else in the forum that if you put cotton or something similar into the mouth of the pitcher it will prevent it from overfeeding that way, and still allow you to enjoy the beauty of the pitchers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Don't be sad. Know that your plant is well fed and will be even bigger next or even this year. Who knows it may send up more pitchers and you can put a light weight netting in the opening to prevent the insects from getting into the pitchers. This same thing often happens to me as the season wears on and the green flies come out by the millions. I plug the new pitchers or they fill up in a matter of days and fall over. The plants have had plenty to eat by this point and it does not hurt them.

    I'm so sorry to that. I am sure that they will be extra healthy next year though. Two feet worth of flies is a lot of flies.LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Anyway, they will rebound. I live in North Carolina and the only place here that has that many flies is in the coastal plain up to about five miles from the coast. That is where the bog, swamps etc. are. Well now that I clarified that hopefully you don't think of NC as the land of the fly and the home bitten. Sorry bad joke.
