    My LFS Turned Charcoal Grey.... ????

    Or something's growing on it. I was checking on my two sundews last night before I went to bed.

    I noticed one pot looked grey, while the other was brown. Oddly enough, the sundew in the grey looks healthier.











    You can see the difference in the last one.

    The one in question is 100% root offshoots because I killed the mother plant, much like I'm doing with the bigger one here....

    Is this a fungus?

    Or mildew. Either way, bad stuff. Do they have enough aircirculation where they're growing?

    No. You can read the thread about their living conditions over here. I'm still working on how to raise these. Drosera adelae honk me off like no other.

    Would circulation cure this problem, or just prevent it in the future?

    I would recommend flushing the media via top-watering multiple times to get rid of that and prevent future outbreaks. looks kinda funky.

    I took off the Sterilite container to give it more air circulation. Wouldn't top watering just push it all down into the soil? Or isn't that bad, because there's no light down in it?

    At least my pitcher plants outside are doing well.
