    Unknown disease/problem

    Have any of you had this on your Nepenthes or know what it is and how to treat? It has taken over most of the plant within a few days

    Can you pop one of those bubbles with a fingernail? I suspect that those are a form of scale. Neeeeeeeeem, or perhaps that Bayer rose stuff.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    I've had something at least similar to this, caused by thrips. Neem, pyrethrins, etc should do the trick.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Thanks guys! I've sprayed today with Neem since its all I've got at home.... I'll also try and get some of the pyrenthrin and try that as we'll and see how it goes.
