    Perhaps some sort of Nematode then?? Were you able to irradicate the pest also? If they are directly causing the problem or making it worse then they need to be eliminated also.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Tony,

    From what I saw I drowned the little buggers out when I soaked the rhizome in superthrive. I changed the water 5 or 6 times until I saw no more exiting the tissue of the rhizome, then I coated it in cleary's 3336. New media completely and destroyed the old. I haven't seen signs of them in any other pots, although I do now see fungus gnat larvae in a few others, but those pots are pretty far away from this one. Btw, can we actually get rid of fungus gnat larvae as well?

    The closest thing I could find that looked like it in the CP FAQ was black vine weevil larvae. I'm just not sure how small they are, these little white worms were tiny, almost like micro worms.

    Do black vine weevil eat orchid flowers btw? I had a phal that I found a beetle munching on flower petals...hmmm.
