    Found a caterpillar on my Nepenthes, should i be concerned?

    Well, I started noticing black dots on my plant a few days ago. Now I realize it's bug poo... I think.

    Then this morning one of my leaf looked really efed up, so I started taking a closer look.

    BAM, found his little sucker. He also ate some of my baby pitchers and leaf....

    Sooooo, is it safe to assume there is only one? I also found webs on the leaf and on my sphagnum.

    What to do? Thanks!

    Light Brown Apple Moth? If so you probably would have been better off feeding it to the plant.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    What to do? Terminate. Terminate with extreme prejudice. Pity we didn't discuss this sooner........
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Caterpillars aren't very complicated creatures. They don't climb a plant for many different reasons.
