    My new D. capensis is doing surprisingly well and growing rapidly. It has recently lured 2 spiders to their deaths. The leaf around each spider now looks like a grey Q-tip. The fuzzy growth concerns me. Is the fungus detrimental to the health of my sundew? If so, please tell me the name of a good fungicide that I can find in a Home Depot or Lowes. Brand names and product names would be a plus to me as I do not know exactly what I need. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img]

    I suggest that for such a small scale problem that you remove the prey corpses, and apply a dab of alcohol to the affected area, followed by syringing with water.

    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
