I feel so sorry for these two as they are in tubs. I'm renting so I can't plant them in the ground. I've noticed that ants seem to be farming aphids on them. Is this ok? As for general feeding is there anything you can recommend? I've been using Seasol.

Ok. Nice. Thanks for sharing. Both plants seem ok. I have a big brown coloured praying mantis in the small green house with them as well. I was just watching it eat the remains of a caterpillar. Picked a few of the older seed pods off the mapacho while I was in there.

Yes coconut fibre just the raw stuff is good. the worms love it and they turn it into pure castings which is super food for your garden. Its a great way to turn waste into plant food. Let the worms eat through the coco in the first month or two. Then you can add veggie scraps after they have worked through the coco. Flush water through the worm farm at least once a week and you can dilute the worm tea or wee 10 to one is recommended but i don't most times. I just give it to the plants the way it is and have never had nitrogen burns etc.
