Hello All! This is my first post here. I have been lurking for about a month now and really appreciate all the great info!

I got my first plants on 11/18 and recently started to notice something brown/orange growing. Does anyone know what it is and what I should do? For now i have separated the plant from the others. I have hydrogen peroxide and read here that 3% diluted 1:10 is an option. My plants are in my living room and that's really my only option for the time being so I cant use anything that stinks.

While capturing photos for this post I also noticed a little critter crawling around! Does anybody know what it is and/or should I care?

Photos are taken with a 100mm macro lens with some quick post processing.

Appreciate your help in advance.

Welcome to the FlytrapCare forums!

It doesn't look like anything I've seen before and since it isn't growing on the plants, I wouldn't worry at all about it.

Looks like a silverfish:

The brown and orange things might be a slime mold?

I would pick them out, and then maybe apply the peroxide or some CP-safe fungicide like Dalconil.

Neem Oil for the Silverfish.

Slime molds, fungi, and silverfish love very damp environments. Maybe cut back on moisture a bit.
