    Drosera capensis white petioles

    I have three drosera capensis giant and their petioles have turned a ghostly white from the base up. Is this a sign of disease? Thanks.

    I'll have to learn how to post photos tomorrow. I suspect it to be heat stress. In the meantime, here's a link to a dew with similar symptoms, just apply it to a capensis.

    If you go to the source of the photo, Sundew Help Page- Drosera Question and Answer, recovery and advice. , that picture is listed under "heat stress". So what you suspect might be something to look into.

    @Acro, that's what lead me to the photo, I had already read the article trying to figure out what was up with my dews. Thanks though.

    @SFLguy, I know that's not a capensis, but I don't yet know how to post photos (I intend to learn how today), so I put up that photo because It had very similar symptoms. I hope that clears things up.

    Thanks for the link, but unfortunately I can't speak to a plant that isn't yours. Despite that your capensis may look similar, it could be an entirely different issue. Let us know when you're able to put pics up. I recommend a photobucket account, which contains IMG tags that you can paste at the drop of a hat.
