    Fungicide?

    My Nep seems to have a fungus, what kind of fungicide can I use? Would the Bayer one work?

    (Disregard the dead pitcher lol)

    Cleary's 3336, Honor Guard, or something with Kresoxim-methyl are typically effective and safe for Nepenthes. None are necessarily cheap, all are toxic as hell, but they work.

    If thrips, treat with imidacloprid. It wipes them out almost immediately.

    Diagnosis first, then seek advice on treatment. Its rarely actually a fungus that causes these problems - more often than not, its insect damage. And yes - I think its likely Thrip damage.

    Thanks for the info, I honestly wouldn't have even checked for bugs but it actually seems to be mites, I got some on a utric and since the nep was far away I hadn't checked it for them :/

    Neem, Talstar, Acequinocyl.. A few options for mites. Stay away from imidacloprid.
