    Double pest problem on D. Intermedia?

    I had noticed my D. Intermedia had quite a few curled and twisted leaves and flowerstalks for some time now. One of the stalks ended up dying, the second stalk got... Weird. It divided in half, and it looked like a D. Binata leaf. That's when I took a very close look and saw tiny green bugs on...

    Dealing with mealybug

    Hey TF! Got my first real pest problem here. I have a mealybug infestation. I've seen one or two here and there for a while, and removed adults I saw and treated the plants they were on with imidicloprid. However, for one reason or another, the population in my growspace has boomed, and my...

    Burrowing pest?

    I made an odd discovery this morning: It seems something burrowed into this pot through one of the drain holes I drilled. Inspecting the others it looks like the creature may have exited through another one. Has anyone experienced this before or have any idea what might have done this?

    Desert Rose pest id

    Hey guys. What do you thing this is? Mealy bugs? Powdery mildew? Will a 3 in 1 pest control work on this, or will it be too harsh on the plant? I'm usually pretty good about pest control but this is a new specimen for me and I didn't check it thoroughly when I bought it :( Sent from my...

    Please help with diagnosis and treatment

    Hello TF'ers, I'm having an issue with two of my nepenthes. One is a hybrid of N. (ventricosa x sibuyanensis) x burkei and the other is a nice seed grown N. burbidgeae. The hybrid nep has been going down hill for the last month or so, and at first I thought perhaps I over fertilized it because...

    Pest ID

    Hey guys, I was hoping you could help me ID these pests from my horrible pictures. I've had fungus gnats for a while and I associated these buggers with them but I wanted to make sure. I'm germinating my first nep seeds and I want to keep them as safe as possible. I can try to get better pics...

    Pest in Drosera Regia Soil

    Hi, I just bought a Drosera Regia and noticed tiny bugs crawling in its soil. I don't know what they are and am afraid that they might harm the plant or spread to other nearby pots. Some grew out of the soil and are now stuck in the water of the tray. Only those seem to jump around a little...

    Diagnosis help

    Hello, I'm not sure what's going on with a few of my plants and am looking for help or advice. Some look like they have some pest damage and a couple have fairly recent leaves, still with pitchers (at least partly alive), that are drying up from the sides of the leaves. My plants are all grown...

    Pest control Methods

    Hi everyone, I have really been hit hard this summer with pests on my CPs. I have found Mealybugs, Aphids and what I think is some kind of Mite. I have not been able to identify it yet as it is very small. I do know that it is red/orange in color. So I am doing some research on methods to get...

    Strange Blackened Area

    Hi all, Today I noticed a strange blackened region on my Nepenthes sanguinea. Although I did accidentally drop a sheet of glass on it a few days ago, it was only a glancing blow and did not cause any visible damage at the time. Can anyone tell me if this is some kind of pest or disease? It's...

    Pest?

    I was watering my plants this morning and also hoped that my near-death binata would come back to life. And so, while I was watering it, a bunch of white insect ran out of the soil and tried to escape. I attempted to kill them all by drowning them and they all started flying or jumping. What...

    Unknown pest

    There are tiny pests about 1mm long circular, black, and shiny on my pinguicula. Anyone know what they are? So far no damage is observed, but I don't want to see any either. Pics coming soon.

    Help with pest ID.

    I found these bugs in a closed cup of ceph leaf pulls. The have a shiny black abdomen and 2 pretty good sized antenna compared to it's body. Small, like mite size, maybe slightly larger. Capable of decent speeds, faster than mites for sure.

    Pest control on sarracenia.

    There's something eating my Dana's Delight, but not my purpurea or any other plant in the bog pot. It chews small holes into the side of the pitcher, which falls over after a couple days of this. I haven't seen what it is yet, but I think it's some sort of katydid. I'll stay up later to see...
