    Well, the plant wasn't very happy. The leaves would not unfurl completely at the tips and the tentacles were coming out deformed or even missing.

    I'm glad the solution is so simple.

    yes precisely, i was worried i had some horrible disease that would spread to my other plants >_< now to figure out what the hell is wrong with my capensis
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    The bloodworm mash had no effect?

    Speaking of bloodworms, I've come to the conclusion that the only substance stickier than sundew glue is reconstituted bloodworms. I tried feeding my newly acquired D. venusta a bit of bloodworm that I dipped first in water with a pair of tweezers. Big mistake - stickier than snot!

    Here's a picture of the black stuff. You can see why I call it a crust. Note the black leaves on the plant on the right. Note also the "deformed" leaf on the left.

    Here are the same plants after being washed the day before. They aren't too happy looking.

    Should I weed out the grassy stuff (not the seedlings though)?

    Thats grassy stuff is a another CP, a terrestrial bladderwort. I have U. bisquamata in my D. aliciae pot and it does no harm.
    that makes no logic

    Good luck! As Finch said it's a Utricularia of some sort and those are almost impossible to get rid of once they are in the pot. It shouldn't be a problem for anything but tiny seedlings which it might shade out.

    Hmmm, ok, I can't complain if they are another CP. Must be munching on the springtails in the soil.

    There's kind of a clover like plant (three leaves) too, another Utric?
