I have had my pitcher plant send up three would-be blossoms, but before they can open , they are gone. Doesn't seem to be chewed...it's a clean cut. I have a fenced yard with two dogs so the neighborhood cats don't come in. Any suggestions what might be doing this? I cannot find the missing blossoms in the pot the plants are in. Thanks for any help. Tina
I agree with Kittriana and also add that you should look out for earwigs, these are night feeders, brown about half inch long with a pair of pincher's at the rear, I would expect birds to scatter the flowers after they have been chew off, same with cats and other animals, slugs can also do this and are night feeders too. I would be out there either at dawn or late evening with a flashlight and see if you can get any clues as to what the culprits are doing.
Good luck. WeeNel.
