Sarracenia pitchers are really deformed

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm hoping someone can help me work out what's going on with my Sarracenia. This year they look terrible, bent pitchers, sparse growth and even pitchers growing in circles. It's early autumn here and they should be looking wonderful as they have in previous years. 

They are kept outside in full sun. Potted in sphagnum peat and perlite and sit on rainwater which is 22ppm tds.

Any help is much appreciated.

Aphids! Look carefully or rub your fingers gentle along and see what comes off.
