    I read on a website that cinnamon is a good organic fungicide for flytraps when they are dormant.The website told me to flicker cinnamon powder all over the bulb,wrap it in moist toilet paper,put it in a plastic bag,then place it in the fridge.Is cinnamon powder a good fungicide?

    I dont know about that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] . My honest opinion I would stay away from trying it. Just the fact it may burn the roots of the vft and may not even kill the fungus. I would just order fungicide from this website.

    Hmmm.. very interesting uglypho, never heard of that before but I'm going to give it a try.

    Just did a search and found these two sites:

    http://www.greenfire.net/hot/P115.html

    http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/biopes.../fs040506t.htm

    Note that it says on the first of those two sites that it is not recommended for orchids so I guess it wouldn't be too good for your VFT's either. They'd be even more sensitive?

    I will try it on some of my Nep leaves.

    Cheers, Troy.

    Interesting idea.

    Cinnamon has been used for a long while by the orchid community and just about any orchid grower that has tried it will swear by it. So not sure what is up with that one article FB found.

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