    You need to crop the dead ones and use a fungicide powder to keep them alive and healthy, One dead plant trap kan kill your whole plant.

    Guys i think i've found out the evil mastermind to all the problems, MITES
    The next leaf of one of those VFTs were deformed and puny. It seems to be spreading through my collection [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Ahhh!
    Ill get some cinamon oil, or what do u guyz recommend? Should i smack the plant till the mites are dead?

    Also, if in the future i wanna prevent mite attack, what precautions should i take? what are early signs of mites?

    Right now all i got is captan, which i 'blow' (In dust form) into my collection occasionally.

    usually i allow the trap to rot cuz there are just too many black traps to cut out! That seems to work fine but not in this case [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    thanks people
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    I read some where that you can sink the entire plant under water for a few days and drown all the little buggies with out hurting the plant.
    I'm still living off the corpse of the old world.

    Hi all, it's been a while. My plant won't eat, and I don't know why. They are slowly dying of trap by trap. Do they stop eating when they go dormant? When I rub the bug on the inside of the mouth to trigger the little hairs, the trap doesn't close. Any of them. But the plant is all green.Some have been developing red on the outside of the leaves, and in the cheeks of the mouths.

    What are you growing conditions? Inside? Outside? Terrarium? Covered? Open tray? Now is the growing season. Dormancy wouldn't be an issue until the Fall. Has it been recently re-potted?

    Oh thank you thank you thank you guys! Now I realise why I have killed every VFT I have gotten. Root Rot! I was told to keep them in water by someone who shall remain nameless. Do drosera have similar requirements by any chance? I've killed every one of them, too. I feel SOOOOO bad. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] Aprilh

    This is a bit of a "ghetto" look, but it is a pic of my co-worker's plants, which I have been entrusted to care for, during the past 6 months. With the exception of Nepenthes, this works well with most CP's - expecially sundews.
