    I lost my second N. burbidgeae x edwardsiana today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    The first died shortly after getting it. But this had appeared to settle in and even produced 4 pitchers in a row. But the last few days the pitchers died quickly and the leaves had the dreaded yellow/brown look. After cutting it up today even the growing tip has a trace of brown running through it so thats that...

    I have a third so my fingers are crossed for that. Whats disappointing is both plants were producing quite different pitchers so I was looking forward to comparing them as they matured. Now I will never know [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Depressed....

    Hi Bill,

    I can feel with you - if it helps, I lost my big N. hamata, a small N. macrophylla, a small N. rajah and a N. densiflora this summer (mostly due to heat stress and mites)

    Best luck with your remaing plant!

    Joachim

    Wow, good luck with the last one.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Sounds very much to me like an infection coming up from the roots such as Phythium or Phytopthora. If so, then your other plants may be in jeopardy unless those plants were infected when you got them and there has been no cross-contamination since.

    Have you ever considered using a Trichoderma spp. in your potting media?

    Trichoderma...?
    Rob, would you mind expanding on that a bit? Could you please tell us what that is, how to use it, and perhaps suggest a brand?
    Thank you Sir,
    Robin
