just been reading up on viruses, and its scared me a bit and put me off growing lots of them. Ive only got 2 vfts right now, and just want to make sure theyre
ok before I buy more.
But my first question is - What are the symptoms of a virus?
Now ill go over to my plants, describe some suspected virus stuff.
This is my oldest plant
The wierd thing about this one is that the feeling things inside the trap are either green or red. If you look towards the centre there are headless things and one of them has a trap the size of half a 1 cent coin. Wierd? Whats the texture susposed to be for a venus flytrap? This one is quite rough.
Now going over to the wierd one: Dont laugh!
This one has only been growing deformed traps, some look like a wave and some are to wide. The new growth from the flower is starting to die, and chunks of the trap are disappearing.
I bought this from Hampshire Carnivores ready potted, it came with a bunch of fungus gnats inside it so I repotted it. This was the first plant ive ever re-potted so it didnt do so good from then on!
All of my other carnivorous plants are fine, and cant worry me. Other than the newer growth of my purpea pitcher (or whatever you call them) seem more pale to the other pitchers?
