    Not sure if this will work, but have you tried wetting a cotton swab with alcohol and dabbing it on the fungus? This has worked for several fungi that have attacked my plants. I will say it does not work on mildew which is currently growing on the soil surface of part of my pygmy collection.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    If you do the alcohol thing, dont spray it over your plants, I already killed some pygmies that way to get rid of a heavy fungus gnats larvae attack... It could work, perhaps, once diluted...

    I would repot them all. Take twisers and pluck out the plants with roots. Rinse off with a spary of water and repot in fresh medium

    I would repot as well and still treat with fungicide just in case a little comes with.

    Could you post a picture. I am not sure what this fungus looks like.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    Hi Spec,

    Everyone's given good advice, BUT I would be very careful if you choose to repot: Pygmy Sundews hate their roots being disturbed or damaged, so you would have to be very careful not to break any of the fine long roots.

    Alternatively, you said you can just start to see gemmae forming: if you can keep the parent plants going long enough to harvest the gemmae (prob around November on), you'll be home and dry! ( to restart the plants from gemmae! ).

    Let us know how it goes... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Kind regards,

    Adam.

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    sure... I'll try to post one tonight... unfortunately two species look like they wont make it... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] an unknown and my scorpiodes...

    edit: william, do you still have some pygmy # 1, pygmy # 2, and C-1 clones? if so, maybe we could trade later on once you get gemmae? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] fortunately, I got a picture of them before the fungus started killing them... If i can find the picture on my computer, I will post it. they looked beautiful, and they got large too... the size of a nickle [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]



    I think i know what this fungus is now! Its the sphagnum, molding! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] I think that's why i couldn't get rid of the mold... I never plucked out the sphagnum! I will take a pic before i pick out the sphagnum, so we might be able to identify it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
