    Make sure they aren't thrips - I've had problems with them before. The signs of infestation are pretty obvious - silvery white patches on the leaves with tiny green dots of excrement. But if they're jumping they are probably just springtails.

    Dodec,

    There's no obvious damage to any leaves that I can see (aside from the fact that I found a group formed into a rosette under some thick sphagnum that almost looks like it has a few tendrils on the tips). The leaves are a nice consistant green, no markings. I also found something that looks almost like a lady bug only black and white and almost a skull on it's back. Not sure what that one is now...well, it seemed to be lunch hanging onto a drosera last I saw it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Um, can springtails be grey. I still have these unidentified grey bouncy things that are to small for me to see details on and to fast to shove under a microscope for ID. I also now have equally microscoping little round insects with big antinie (compaired to their invisable legs). Both eat my VFT leftovers.

    Springtails can be grey, green, brown, black, white, silver... Pretty much any colour that would blend with soil

    Darcie,

    Yeah, the one's in my pot vary between gray, white and gray-whitish yellowishish... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Yup, gray-whitish yellowishish. Freaky when you see a swarm though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
