Before (this was on March 29):
And then what I'm seeing today:
Hopefully you can sort of make out how (in addition to the green being less vibrant) the flytrap on the left is now leaning much closer to the ground than it had been leaning originally (the two photos are taken from the same vantage). This re-positioning seems (so far as I can tell) to correlate with a change of coloration that I'm noticing now at the base of this main flytrap. This photo (which I've fiddled with slightly so as to make the color-contrast more exaggerated/perceptible) is hopefully showing how the flytrap's base has become sort of brownish:
Does anyone know what might be going on here? It's got me pretty worried!
Points of potentially-relevant context:
Last night (the night before I noticed this drooping) was the first time that I sprayed the plant with some Neem Oil that I ordered recently on Amazon (this brand: https://www.amazon.com/BONIDE-PRODUCTS- ... r=8-2&th=1). I'd primarily been using the Neem Oil just for some seeds that I've been trying to get to germinate in a separate container, so spraying it into the baby flytrap was mainly just for fun - I hadn't noticed anything particularly off about it. But then shortly after the spraying I noticed a couple of tiny white worm-looking creatures scurrying around (they seemed to move in a manner similar to green inchworms, but were much smaller). They disappeared before I was able to get a picture of them but I saw them and sort of thought "sheesh maybe I ought to spray a little more," so that's what I ended up doing. Is the neem oil perhaps the underlying cause, then? Or maybe those white worms are doing some kind of damage to the plant? In any case, I should maybe also note that the coloring of the flytraps had sort of been changing for little a while before any of this - the flytrap tips had been slowly turning reddish. But I hadn't before then noticed any of the drooping that I'm now seeing today.
Does anyone have any insight on how big of an issue this is, and/or what might have caused it? Thanks very much!
