Mildew on Nepenthes in Terrarium - Help!

Mon, 20 Mar 1995 20:36:54 -0500 (EST)

I have developed a problem in my 55 gal. nepenthes terrarium. Mildew. Black
and ugly. The plants don't like it and some of the leaves are dying. Will
benomyl work (it seems to me that mildew is a fungus, so I thought a fungicide
would kill it)? I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on how to best
handle this problem. To complicate matters, there are some fish living in the
water below the plants, so I don't want to use anything that might kill them.
