    I find a high sand to peat ratio works best for these plants, and never use sphagnum. I would let the medium dry off some: pymys can take the surface nearly bone dry and still grow well. In the mean time I would go with Nick's idea, versus repotting which is very dangerous , especially this time in their cycle.

    From what I have read, I would not repot them. Pygmies have a very delicate root system. You might try a dry dormancy. Pygmies are adapted to dry climates. Mine are in dormancy right now. I havn't watered them for two weeks now, and the soil is all dried out. This might help kill the fungus.

    Ditto for mine. Cobra lilies and pygmy sundews: no luck.

    The same green fungus is little more than a nuisance to other plants, but it has just about tortured my last pygmy to death. I've tried to pick it out and replace with river rock or silica sand to keep it from growing back. Fungicide... Grrrr!

    Dry?

    Well, maybe next time.
