    Hi all,

    My sars are getting little blotches on the lids. In past years I thought this was normal and due to heat. However, itís been cool this year and I am wondering if it is a fungus or a virus. I donít think itís a virus, but it could be a fungus or something else I suppose. Iím just not sure what it could be. Anyone have any ideas? Iíve published photos on my website and even have a form that you can fill out and send me responses. Of course a response here is best, but Iíll publish responses I get via the form here.

    hey! welcome to the forums!

    Looks like thrip or scale waste to me... I get that sometimes. I just use sevin-5 dust, sprinkle it all over the pitchers. Works like a charm [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I love your website. The pics from phil faulisi's place are awesome. I should be going there soon. Maybe I'll see you there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]



    hmm... Then again, it doesn't look like waste at all... Maybe some beetles been nibbling on them? My squash look somewhat like that when a beetle or two decide to have a snack...

    How much light does he have? Heat may not be the only factor... Down here in Monterey, maybe an hour from you, it's been pretty hot and sunny [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    You have a nice bog/pond garden! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I remember that truncata from BACPS... Didn't know you were in San Jose! Must take loooooong showers to have high humidity there! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Can't wait till next BACPS meeting, hope I'll see you there!

    The hottest it's been in the last few weeks is 80 degrees. It gets morning sun through early noon, around 12:30-1PM is gets shade.

    Thanks for the compliments on the bog garden. Stop by when you come up to see Phil. I'm about 10 minutes away.

    Moving to the Sarracenia forum where more Sarracenia nuts hang out and might be able to help.

    I am far from a Sarracenia problem expert so take this lightly...Does not look like insect damage to me. I am more inclined to go with some sort of fungal pathogen or perhaps burning via the sun focused on water droplets..

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
