I have 2 plants in the pictures below that I grow outside in zone 9 year round. The first plant a weird collection of spots on a new growth point. They are in other spots on the plant but less clustered. Looks like there are a few on another younger growth point.
The 2nd picture is of a few of my plant's stems that are turning black before the traps do. Is this normal? Usually the trap part of the leaf is the first to die and the stem kind of hangs out until the plant decides to get rid of it.
I have Scotts DiseaseEx and Bioadvanced 3 in 1 at the ready if these are fungal infections. If this is pest damage, I have some stuff for that as well.
All help is greatly appreciated!
