    The ref. is to a Georgian brown recluse. Brown recluse give a particularly nasty bite. While the poison doesn't penetrate very deep, it travels fairly extensively shallowly and causes necrosis (death) of the cells it comes in to contact with. So what you can end up with is a big, but not deep, spot where the flesh is all dead. Not fun.

    On Sarracenia:




    On other plants you'll see similar tiwsting and deformation.

    Question for the sake of clarity: So you've seen aphids on your plant, right? We're not making assumptions?

    Not saying you're lying I just want to establish without a doubt that we know what the problem is. No sense trying to kill aphids if we don't know if it's aphids causing the problem, know what I mean?

    I had a major aphid infestation on my VFTs. I sprayed them with some Orthenex and poof--no more aphids, and the plants seem none the worse for wear.

    I have heard that the wettable powder form of Orthene is better, but have never run across any...

    Any sort of minor thing like that should be of little consequence. Even more major deformations can just be due to physical stress. Aphids cause major twisting and deformation. You've got aphids when you see 'em.
