    I have had a few neps for a while but they never produced pitchers. Finally they are but one of the "gubler hybrids" is doing something i'd never herd of. When looking at the bottom of the leaves it looks like the plant was misted and it made water droplets. Except these "droplets" are not water. they are supper sticky. Can someone explain this to me? ...the plant seams to be in good condition and i don't see any bugs. thanks!
    ...someone please move this to nep forum... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] ...thanks.

    Those are the nectar glands at work. They are normal and may become covered in a black fungus. The fungus will not hurt the plants and is also a normal occurance.

    The fungus Nick is reffering to is sooty mold as it looks similar to soot after a fire is burned. It can be easily wiped off with a wet cloth. I have only had sooty mold on N. truncata. It isn't harmful but makes your plant look like it has been sprayed with black spray paint all over the leaves.

    Nice picture! I get those on my neps, including the pitchers. However, you have a lot of them! Looks healthy to me.

    What do the pitchers look like? Do you have any idea what they are? I have a mystery nep from gublers, too, and have no idea what it is. Hopefully the next pitcher gives better clues.

    I'm not a good nep identifier....actually I stink on it lol [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It looks to me like an albomarginata or something like it. But that's just me.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
