I am having a bit of a problem with my Dente. It seems to have stopped new growth production since a few weeks ago. A little after the beginning of June (around the same time some of my other plants were attacked by aphids), the plant ceased growing new traps/leaves. The plant was NOT attacked by aphids and was NOT treated with the systemic insecticide. The last trap it grew was healthy and fairly large.
Currently, it is losing traps and leaves at its normal pace, but has not shown any new growth at the center of the rosette in about 2 weeks. Its current foliage looks healthy. The plant also has a small offshoot growing next to it. Here is a bit of extra info: It grew a flower stalk back in May, but it was cut off immediately. The plant has been growing outside in full sun since February 2007 and is top watered about every 2-3 days. I let my pots dry a bit before top watering (I don’t use the tray method).
Does anyone have an idea as to why it has stopped growing? Should I give it more time to possibly recover from some unknown condition? Has anyone experienced anything similar to this?
Any help is appreciated!
