    The reason I deleted the post was because it did not contribute to the discussion on helping carnivore diagnose his problem and was just a "here is my plant" picture post.

    Carnivore - it's pretty serious, I would certainly isolate the plant from the others. I can't remember exactly, but I think something similar was diagnosed as a fungus a while back. I think I remember Tony talking in depth about it a while back on someone else's plant.

    It has happened to me before on the same plant xvart, sorry i wasnt more detailed on that....
    I dont think his plant is past the point of recovery, but its definitely getting there.
    Basal production anyway, i think the growth tip is toast....or a node further down the vine, looks like the black death....
    Edit:
    looking at the tip some more, it looks like it could pull back, id definitely ask Tony P about this one.

    i wouldnt say its black death, just looks kinda like it, i guess after looking at it it, not all of the leaves have blackened off up to the growth tip
    but i do think you have some sort of root rot issue. what is your media

    pure live sphagnum works great for some people
