    Hmmmm That might be worth a try too. The alcohol and water. Can alsy try some neam oil or insectacidal soap. Mites are nasty little things. Just do not use Merit or the Bear advanced rose and flower spray that contains merit for mites. I hear its like viagra to them.

    I've found a 1:1 water:isopropanol solution works well to kill aphids, scale, mealy bug, and mites on nepenthes. I haven't used it on any other genera of CPs.

    Mr Aga striaght from the bottle. The stuff for cuts and scrapes is only 3% and should do no harm to plants. It breaks down into water and oxygen rather quickly. Orchid people use it to sterilize seeds by putting the seed n it and leaving it ovright in the sun or bright light. By morning the seeds are in pure water. I would think the oxygen at the roots of the plant would do some good. I will try on some extra dews of similar size later this week after work.

    sounds like you shouldnt need to test it and it would benifit the plants.

    I will see how it affects Sarr's starting with S. purpurea! I better have insurance!

    I agree, but testing is still in order. Untill it is confirmed a benefit only try it on plants you have spares of. Unless you don;t mine an accidnet to an only plant.
