    Hello. I bought a N.Sanguinea RED from ebay. After I got the plant and opened it, it was packet in peanut foam or something and the plant it self didn't even have a lid or a cover to protect it from getting damaged during the delivery.


    After I cleaned it off and put it into my lowland tank it was doing fine. 4-5 days later it starts to get some crispy white stuff on it's leafs and all over all the leafs and even some half died pitchers. I don't know what happened my temps in the tank are 79'F and humidity is always 80-82%. Can someone tell me what's wrong and what should I do to get rid off this.

    Phil, give people some time to respond to this you just posted this 1 hr ago and then ask 1 hr later if anyone knows, just relax someone will reply like I am now.

    Ok, perhaps it is nectar secretions? My N. bicalcarata secrets nectar then it turns white and gelly-like with a crusty layer sorta like pine tree sap. I wouldn't think it is a disease..perhaps more of the peanut shipping particles are still on it?

    I dont think i would ever buy from Ebay, although i never have, i have heard alot of ppl that have recieved poorly conditioned plants, I would only purchase plants from legitiment companies, anyways, I think it could be a fungus? I read about something like that, I will try to find it.

    You could try re-potting it(assuming it was pre-potted) and before potting it, dunk it in clean water to wash it good. It will also fill the pitcher when you do that to keep them from dehydrating.

    Regards,

    Really hard to tell from your description on what it might be.

    Other thing I noticed is you said you put it in your lowland setup. N. sanguinea is a highland plant. 80 degrees is ok for daytime but the plant would like it to cool off during the night.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Did you wash the peanut stuff off with hard water? If you were that might explain the crusty stuff reappearing.
