What's eating my P. cyclosecta?


Recommended Posts

This was perfect when I bought it at the Hampshire Carnivorous Plants open day less than a week ago.  It's now being steadily nibbled.  Perhaps there are micro rabbits in the green house!

Nothing else is (yet) having this problem.

All advice gratefully received.

What ive had trouble with recently, same holes in my nepenthes, was slugs, I saw a baby slug that had nibbled the top of my jacquelineae (growing tip currently unknown amongst the black ends) in june then a big one on the floor at the start of july. In my temperate greenhouse my sweet peppers were being eaten, steadily 1 then 3 with half mssng, caught the culprits = snails, caught one at 9:30pm then another at 10:30pm a week ago.

I think the heat and lack of water from outside plants is drawing them into our greenhouses, although i havent seen a slug in weeks im still getting earwigs in my heated and garden spiders in my temperate, vfts must have caught 20+ in their traps atm, 3-4 scuttling away as i cool the darlingtonia roots with fresh water

Just looks like  slug or snail has had a few quick bites then gone off on its merry way
