Hey all, I've very recently moved one of my fresh loph seedlings outside to catch the last of the warmer weather. They have been sitting on a window sill for the past few months. The other day I checked on them and noticed a bunch of ants have been chewing holes in one of them. Has anyone had this problem? And how do you stop the little psychonauts from having a feast? I've moved them back to the window sill but am wondering if the damage done will prove fatal, should I try and salvage the plant by grafting?
As adorable as Ants get they are. They're all over the inside of my tent all day, stopping very much regularly to pull and pen and reshape their feelers. They appear to be quite OCD about their feelers being right and look like they're doing their hair all day long. They walk all over me, and each time I feel one on my arm I'll pass my hand against the wall or floor and they just walk right off and carry-on farming their food. Not one has any one of these Ants bitten me at all, even though their mandibles look.. Perfectly formidable. They also seem compelling disinterested in any of my food; even the sugar doesn't interest them in fact I very rarely see them carrying anything at all. Anyway, see attached photo.
Meditator posted a topic in Chill SpaceI have recently re-potted a plant into a larger pot and am worried about the ants. The last thing i grew (it was a prickly pear of types, not the usual green with yellow hairs but green with white. It was large and ugly af) in it ended up dying from dehydration and becoming A FUCKING ANT FARM. There was almost no soil.. there was more ant than soil when i tipped it. Now that ive got thee pot back and the ants out.. they want to come back?! What do I do guys? I mean circling the pot with ant sand doesnt sound the best.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. this plant is just too precious to let die.
i saw this cool doco on ants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n0SkIGARuo It got the thinking how amazing they are and how similar they are to us. whats really crazy is that a whole colony comes from one ant, the queen, which is cool cause it really make the whole colony like one life form in itself. - what does everyone else think about ants?
