    There has been a weird type of virus/fungus? that has been infecting ONLY my VFT's... it starts off first with one of the traps turning pitch black for no reason, then moves down the leaf to the growing point where future leaves get infected and deformed. After that it then moves down to the growing point and destroys it, killing the plant and leaving the bulb behind which starts off with small offshoots again....
    The worse has been on my cup trap, and killed it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    The Dente, Cross Tooth, Fang, and Pink Venus is getting a little worse and I've tried Funginex by ortho and neem oil without sucess...
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sounds like some sort of pathogen..
    PFT I think sells cleary's fungicide. Good stuff. Might be worth a try. I haven't looked up the Ortho stuff.

    I don't think yours have the the same thing. In my infection ALL the traps get diseased and the growing point gets infected later on ceasing all growth.
