Herself's Houseplants

Killing plants so you don't have to


I found an itty bitty lizard living in one of the orchids upstairs. He scurries off when he sees me but keeps moving back into the orchid.

I think I’ll leave him there, he doesn’t seem to be doing any harm and seems to be getting by just fine.

Another tip you have a free loader is waking up to find small amounts of soil scattered around your house plant. Clean up the soil in the morning and it re-appears in the evening. This is a sign you have a caterpillar or some earthworms working the plant soil. It’s great for the plant, but messy.
