Repotted #2 22 days after planting
After repotting, #1,2 and 3 look good.
#3 seemed to be falling behind in growth. I decided to experiment with sunlight. so I put #3 on the rooftop.
Then, out of no where, leaves started disappearing (#1, balcony)
#3, on the rooftop, photos taken in the morning. I removed the wormy things, flushed them down the drain.
#3, on the rooftop, photos taken in the afternoon. New wormy things arrived and more leaves gone (left). Whats left after cutting off the eaten parts (right). Not much, but I am hoping it survives. I’ve sprayed it with some fertilizer to help it along.
Oh the agony of removing these wormy things. Popsicle sticks, bbq sticks, concentration and a steel-y heart (eep, most difficult!) that it goes where i want it to go (drainage!). I’ve been advised to spray the leaves with a mixture of laundry soap, water and oil. I hope that works to keep them away.
