haven't posted for awhile; but I have a quick question. *I don't have pics but will be descript.
I have about 40 commons twelve weeks since bare root bought from Phil *(of course) I potted them in 50/50 Canadian Sphagnum peat and perlite.
Overall, they appear very healthy, but have noticed some are turning very pale yellowish white on the outer edges of the petioles, then finally turn black. *It then affects the trap and all in a matter of a week or two. *This is happening on rather young growth so age isn't a factor. It isn't epidemic yet.
They are grown indoors 6 inches from 4 40 watt flourescense from cool white to full spetrum for 12 hours a day. I'm careful not to overwater letting them get to dry damp before watering again (using R.O. water).*There doesn't seem to be any roots coming out of the bottom of the plastic stock pots to indicate root bind. *I wetted them yesterday with cleery fungicide.
Did I do the right thing. *If growing VFT'S indoors where it's cool all the time gonna require an occasional fungicide treatment? *Is it fungus at all? *They aren't bannana specked that would indicate spider mites, but maybe it is anyway?
Thanks in advance.
