We have a beach house on the gulf coast of Florida and when the weather turns hotter we find these very tiny white/grey snails in the yard and climbing the walls outside. Any ideas on how to get rid of them there are hundreds of them?
I took a good look with my glasses and it seems that the designs on the screen were once a green color and have quite a bit of rust. I'm wondering if I should do some restoration along
with a good clean using the proper product. I think using a rub on color in a dark green might work??? I need to stop the rust. I guess a sane person would call me wish washy but I need your input to make a decision
How do I get rid of those stupid half dozen flies that continually circle on the front porch. They are too low for a hanging fly trap to do any good. Help - I know they will be out there all summer. Thanks in advance.
We have a problem with nut grass. (My mother bought dirt from a nursery and it was in the dirt) We pull it and its back in back in a week. She has used Roundup and it doesnt work. She bought a " nutgrass killer selective herbicide" by a company called Monterey this also had no effect. As you can see from pics below.
We live in Tallahassee, FL where there is an abundance of trees that locals call "Poppin Jack" not sure what technical name is but the nick name sure explains what they do. They pop up
everywhere and grow very quickly. Most of them we are able to manage by mowing over them but the ones that are a problem are the ones that pop up under the large trees. There are some saplings that have popped up around them that are just too big to mow and I don't want to use any type of weed killer. Any suggestions for our out of control "Poppin Jack"?
I love the Christmas cactus but try as i may...I have never understood how to keep them healthy and alive. I have read instructions on how to water...
Don't over water, do not allow them to dry out...Place them in well draining soil... Blah, blah, blah,...... I purchased a couple two years ago and as usual they still remain a mystery to care for.
In December of 2011 my white cactus bloomed, the pink one did not.
When I moved to a new apartment the following year I placed them at the window with my other sun loving plants as I did in my last apartment..
That December, neither bloomed.......I assumed it was the change and like the other plants... they needed to get acclimated...
I changed their soil and pots over and over again...Some dried them out to quickly like the clay pots...Others like ceramics, would keep them appearing healthy for a while but then they would stop growing.
This year the only thing I've done differently was to change the pots again!. I purchased two cheap little plastic pots from the dollar store and forgot to place holes in the bottom, however, when I watered them... I allowed them to dry out between watering...and did not bother to punch holes in the bottom because they seem fine..
I than decided this month to place them on the balcony where they receive indirect light... And guess what...They began to bud!
I still can't figure this out...What did I do right/wrong? They are blooming in May??
