    I have the small gnats that live in damp soil. Though since I moved them outside,I have not seen any. Except one dead in a trap that has since reopened. I am waiting to see how the plant fares on the hunt in open territory. Time will tell. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/ghostface.gif[/img]

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    whenever i think my plants might be having a problem with insects, i will totally submerge the plant under water for 24-48 hours. the idea is that the bugs will either leave the pot or drown. since vft's are bog plants, they can handle the water.

    i would try this before getting more agressive with chemicals.

    peace,

    Investing in a magnifying glass would be helpful, not only to detect small bugs, but when you attempt to germinate seeds, you can see them much more easily. As Technoracer suggests, drowning them is a good, safe way of killing many critters, without doing harm to CP's. Please refrain from using the magnifying glass for other purposes, if you catch my drift.

    Newly imported plants sometimes do that from an extreme change in evironment. it will recover from shock (if it is in shock that is). The leaves might rot later on.

    I don't really know much about aquatic growing, think you should seek advice from some of the more experienced growers like say Tamlin. I say just leave it there (potted/bare root your choice), and when you have eliminated the possibility of any bad bugs, then keep it in an emergency grow chamber, with the same conditions as their native habitat.

    Now, how 'bout another article on aquatic growing Tamlin... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
