Nepenthes Being Eaten - Update
Tue, 02 Aug 1994 21:13:27 -0400 (EDT)

Thanks for all the suggestions for my Nepenthes problem. I tried the
immersion in water trick, and to my surprise, several "caterpillars" floated
to the surface. These appear to be the mystery eaters. They are dark grey
and about 1 cm in length. I think they are moth larvae; the plant room
attracts lots of moths because I have the lights on at night (to keep temps
lower). My concern is that the immersion method won't kill the eggs, and I
may be faced with the problem agian. Also, only 24 hours later, I found
two more (live) ones chomping away.

Maybe it's time to make some tobacco soup...
