    Don't say that! The good news is that on most plants (all but the rajah baby), it seems to be a one leaf deal. Just pretty disappointing to not get a new hamata or jacquelineae pitcher for a while... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Well certainly want to do several things.

    Keep an eye on problem spots already identified. If the affected areas continue to expand then there is a more serious problem.

    Keep an eye on the rest of the plants and currently unaffected areas. If new problem areas pop up then there is a very serious problem.

    Potential fixes..
    Remove affected areas if they continue to expand.
    Possible chemical treatment if new areas continue to pop up which most likely indicates some pathogen.
    Slight change in environment.. increased air movement or a drop in humidity or something.

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

    Ok, I will do that... I am really ring hard to figure out what it is that would affect Sphagnum and Neps... The sphagnum that is affected is all white and got a little more limp. Almost looks lke mashed potatoes. I think I will try to reduce humidity first and foremost. Then if something else happens, plan accordingly. I'll keep you updated!

    I dont know about cp's, but in hortaculture the normal practace is to remove and burn all deseased leaves and such to prevent the disease from spreading and the birning would be destroying any spores on or developing on the infected leaf. And steralize all equipment that has touched infected areas
    that makes no logic

    Sounds like stagnant conditions to me. Neps need good airflow particularly highland plants esp, in the day. Overheating and overly humid tanks invite fungus to move in and plant cells to wither. Try venting and increased aircirculation with cool fresh air.

    Ok,
    That's good to know Dustin! I did open up the air vents on the Growchamber a tiny bit more... I'm just disappointed I didn't quite do it in time for all of the tendrils, etc. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Do you think the jacquelineae pitcher will still swell with a "burned" lid? At least the plants will be fine! THANKS AGAIN!!

    Once a tendril gets infected/damaged it goes out pretty quickly. If you get a rotted tendril it will rapidly break down due to the fact it is very young and new, soft plant tissue.

    Update: Just got home, the prognosis is not good... Photos will soon follow. I just can't figure out what's wrong... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    Thanks for the help!
