While I was watering and misting my Neps the other day, I noticed a large amount of fuzzy material growing in my pitcher traps. I keep my N. x miranda and N. x coccinea, along with my N. maxima outside all summer. Of course, I had to bring them in last month since it was getting a little too chilly at night. The plants get misted 3 times daily and sit in front of my large baywindow which receives the best southern sun in the winter (and believe it or not, i still get pitchers on all of them). But, they did an excellent job of catching critters this summer and i really noticed most of the fuzzy mold stuff on top of floating carcasses in the larger pitchers. I don't know if i should be worried about this or not. the pitchers still look healthy and i was wondering if anyone else has ever seen this happen too? the smell from the pitchers is strong, but the plants are doing well. I shook the pitchers and destroyed the fuzzy stuff. Should I be worried? should i think about scooping the carcasses out of the pitchers or is just nature at work?
What do you guys/gals think?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
