Kill or cure…

Recommended Posts


Roridula gorgonias rescued by gardenofeden67, on Flickr

This plant of Roridula gorgonias succumbed to fungus in my greenhouse mid-summer 2012. I put it outside in all the wind and rain of our really bad summer as a kill-or-cure, and it seems to have cured with fresh resprouts.

The technique works quite well for Sarracenia too. Plants with fungus infections (not botrytis) are put outside, preferably for about a year including a winter! Quite often, they will recover.

This is the best way for solved any problems ,i do this too whit plants that have mealy bugs or red spider,you never see fungus,mealy bugs or red spider on plants outside,this are all pests that only have in a greenhousse.Match better treatment then fungicide or pesticides,for sure for carnivores ,

Cheers Will
