Hi, everybody, I've been on Houzz for a while, but did not know there were discussions until Astrea told me. If you must store seeds/grains indoors or in the garage, storing them in an airtight container after adding about a tablespoon of diatomaceous earth per gallon of seed will eliminate the problem. Search   Proper soil for a container plant is probably the number one growing requirement and the one most often overlooked/ignored/bypassed.

Same cactus, different pots, one is wilting. 'I only ever use the toilet brush with bleach and let it sit between the seat and toilet rim until dry and I'm not on a property with septic tank, rain tank or anything else,' she said.

After taking to a Facebook group to ask for help with identifying the bizarre pests, it was quickly brought to her attention they were drain fly larvae - a warning sign that there's a lot of buildup in the toilet drain or damaged pipes. what did you use for potting media ... looks like black dirt. As well, they were under papers, behind a shelf, near a plant....it was like a raw chicken MUST have exploded at some point during my sleep!!!!

[i know others here might argue with what i just said.. but i am just giving you some general ideas.. of what to think about it all .... you can surely ID your plant.. and google up its native haven.. and then think about the media.. it might prefer in a pot...].

I'd invest in a good, porous, soil-less potting mix and dump this stuff in the outdoor garden. I do 'clean up plants' and 'toss badly infected plants pot and all' ... at times I can find a part of the plant that is almost clean, hand clean a few small flecks off, and put it into an isolation cutting cup-and toss the main plant.
