Good afternoon,

i have had some problems with my sarracenias, i have one S.flava and one S.stevensii that now seems to not be so good. I dont know if winter is coming or its something of autumn or hibernation, im living in madrid.

They have too much spots and brown parts like bites of insects, i have found sometimes little spider webs, some night i have seen flying white flies... i dont know what it is...if is some insect or some fungus or some virus... i have used potasium soap and neem oil and nothing seems to work...

have someone the same problem? 
Lots of thanks! love this forum!

Hi Roberto. I really am not sure, but the marks look like damage from THRIPS. If so, they are to small to be seen, dig into the leaf and leave those black marks. I have had similar attacks to non-carnivorous plants which responded well to  a systemic pest spray. I hope you get it sorted, Keith.

Thanks for the answer, I have bought a systemic insecticide to try it.

i hope not to be a virus and this insecticide kill this pest and don’t damage my plants, my dionae is beginning to have spots too...

thanks another time!

Hi Roberto. I have had a word with my friend who grows carnivorous plants. He thinks the same, probably THRIPS. If so you must ISOLATE the affected plants, keep them away from healthy plants. Treat at least once per week and give the good ones a treatment to be safe. I am new to CP's but know this works with non-CP. Importantly, please do check these facts with a bit of research to make sure any treatment will not harm your plants.
