    D. Muscipula: I'm not sure about the mold infecting. I got concerned when it started covering pieces of wood interspersed in the moss. I asked for an ID of it and Botrytis got a lot of votes. I'm not sure if it just covers or infects, but I'm not really willing to wait and find out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. I just hope my plants hold out until Christmas and I can put them in the fridge (I'd do it at Thanksgiving, but I'm visiting realtives in NH and won't be able to go home). I'm not sure how the Neem would affect cephs, as I don't grow any, so you'll have to find out for yourself on that. Try spraying one pitcher and see if it reacts negatively.

    The stuff I'm using is also the water-based three-in-one stuff (Insecticide, fungicide, miticide). The label says it's safe to use on tomatoes and veggies, so I guess CPs would be okay (especially since I've yet to see a negative reaction from my plants after over a month of use. *knocks on wood*).

    BTW: My plants are doing great under the CF Bulb. Thanks again for your help last summer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    that dying back from the edges of the leaves can indicate spider mite attack. these are not insects, so dont respond well to insecticides, you need an acaricide, and you need to spray the undersides of the leaves cos thats where they live, or try submerging the plants in water for a week or so. if it is spider mites, you will need a x20 hand lens to see them as they are tiny!

    Interesting. Do spider mites usually kill entire healthy plants? And do they not attack dews and neps?

    Here's a pic of the plant that was killed, early in the stages of the disease/infestation:


    I hadn't thought the leaves and traps all died back from the edges, but it kind of looks that way from this photo, too. Has anybody else had spider mites do similar-looking damage?

    So sorry to hear that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Glad to hear the pink venus survived (those things are expensive),it`s just too bad you`r biggest plant had to die (I know how I`d feel if my grape fruit tree that I raised from a seed died),also I think you could get away without dormancy this e=year.

    That was a nice set of traps there. Do these kind of random diseases occur often?

    Well, that's the million dollar question, isn't it?

    I wish i knew

    1- What it was

    2- If it will happen again

    and

    3- How to prevent that!

    D musc, you mean my plants have been going into dormancy since March? Seems unlikely...

    They have been getting better since I flushed out the pots every day for a week two months ago... maybe they will start looking better after I repot them later on in the winter... Also, every one of my VFTs have been totally teensy and weak all year... Oh well... maybe the 19 seedlings will turn out better...
