Last weekend I cleaned up my Sarracenia's by cutting off the brown and
dead leaves. In a pitcher of a S.x mitcheliana I found a snail. I know
slugs and snails can eat complete plants so I wanna get rid of them.
Slugs and snails can't stand salt. If you sprinkle some salt on a slug
he's melting away (cruwel, isn't it?).
I sprinkle some salt in the pitcher where the snail was hiding. After
30 minutes I took a look to the snail to see what happened to him. He
was half melting away.
I wonder if salt in the pitcher do any harm/effect to to the pitcher or
the whole plant? I gues the picher will die so I cut it of.
