I'm having an issue with two of my nepenthes. One is a hybrid of N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x burkei and the other is a nice seed grown N. burbidgeae.
The hybrid nep has been going down hill for the last month or so, and at first I thought perhaps I over fertilized it because I was getting some stunting, well now it appears that is not the case as I have now noticed these little white spots all over the pitchers, tendrils and growth tip. The hybrid looks like its probably a lost cause, but I really like like to save the burbidgeae, its one of my favs. Luckily its no where near as bad as the hybrid is and is still growing albeit slower and with less size.
I can't figure out if its some kind of fungal body I'm seeing or if its a remnant of some kind of pest insect. Unfortunately I don't have any means to take better photos as my camera is out of commission so will have to make due with these crummy cell phone telephone pics.
Here is a picture of the hybrid:
Here is a picture of a leaf I excised from the N. burbidgeae :
The environmental parameters are as follows.
Day time temp: 76.5º-78.5º
Night time temp: 57.5º-60.5º
Day time humidity: 75%-80%
Night time humidity: 85%-95%
Primary humidity using an ultrasonic fogger with secondary humidification consisting of an over head MistKing setup.
14 hour photoperiod consisting of 1400 watts of LEDs and 4 x48" T5HO 6500K fluorescents.
I'd very much appreciate any help, if theres any more data I left out that would be helpful in determining a diagnosis, let me know.
