    Is it a fungicide/pesticide or fertilizer of some kind?
    I get that on some of my Neps' leaves. I've never been sure what it is, but I'm positive that my plants aren't wild-collected.

    Anyone know what it is?
    Mineral deposits from water that has dried on the leaves.

    Greenhouse yes. During the Winter I keep the temps around 76day/54night. There is a little 30% shade cloth up in the peak of the greenhouse all year. The main 50% shadecloth is off for the Winter. Sunlight up in my neck of the woods is a rare event for a good portion for the Winter and when it does shine it is not very intense.

    In my case it is fungicide. Mineral deposits would also be a good bet particularly if overhead watered or misted frequently with less than very pure water.

    Very touch and go. I find they take a long time root and a large portion just up and turn black on me.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony,
    It's good to see you posting on the forums.
    Great pics as usual of your neps.
    I really wish a had more room to grow a few more neps. N. aristolochioides is one that I would really like to try.

    Wonderful pics, great plants!

    Say, do you deliberately leave the fungicide on the leaves for a reason or is it difficult to wash off? Is it a systemic type?

    Speaking of fungicides, would you know of any safe systemic ones in the UK, Rob?
