It wasn't long after I had my VFT that I began to notice the tiny new traps developing out of the center were turning black, and dying. Soon even the bigger developing traps were falling prey to this. I think it's that Black Spot fungus that affects VFT's. I went to my local Wal-Mart's garden section hoping for some Cleary 3336WP, but all they had is something called Schultz Fungicide 3. Here's a review I found online.
It says it's water-based, so it might not have any of those drosera-raping petroleum wetting agents I've read about. Has anyone used this, and if so, how did it work?
