    Mystery Diagnosis (Nep Edition)

    So recently I've been noticing that a lot of my neps have been falling "ill" to a mysterious affliction. Basically waht happens is that a developing leaves start getting some weird brown patternings under the leaves, eventually the leaf only opens partly, and sometimes this "thing" causes deformities to some leaves.

    I almost lost my N. ventricosa "cream pitchers" from what i suspect is the same affliction, I decided to cut the main GP, because basals had developed. the Basals are completely clean and growing quickly.

    So any insight into what this might be, recently my N. spectabilis x aristolochioides, and N. jamban have developed deformities in the leaves. I have no Idea whats going on, I've checked the plants for bug with a magnifying glass, and I can't find anything, and no sign of webs anywhere either.

    Here are pictures to get an idea, sorry for the lighting . . .

    N. vent x ( vent x xTM) - Notice how the leaves curl toward the base


    Notice he same curling at the base, note that the previous leaf is flat at the base where it "grasps" the stem.





    Note the Roughness of this leaf


    N. diatas has had it for a while, seems to recover for a bit, and gets it again.








    N. ventricosa x hamata has gotten it badly aswell




    So dust of those $15 Botanical MD certificates you bought on eBay and help

    Sorry I failed to mention this, but I've been neeming and it doesn't seem to have any effect?

    EDIT - Now that you mention it, after googling, I have seen those critters I believe in my pots

    Uh oh, that sounds bad. Could you try dry ice bombing them?

    Might be springtails too though so make sure you get the right diagnosis.

    Use Spinosad to control thrips.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I saw a small slender black bug in one of my pots the other day but I usually check my plants every couple of days for any signs of stress or pests and didn't see any damage. Any chance it could be thrips? I'm going to do a more thorough check tomorrow.
