Peresk Leaves getting Munched On

Recommended Posts

I have some pereskiopsis living outside in a pot in the open. I live on the second floor (3rd for you yanks) of an apartment and have noticed something has had a munch at some leaves.

Just wondering if anyone knows what might have done this and how to go about stopping it?

I have little general gardening knowledge so any advice would be much appreciated.

Need these guys strong and healthy to help support some trichs ill graft in a few weeks.

I would consider buying a little greenhouse, peres love the extra humidity and heat. 

The little greenhouse might also create a barrier between your plants and the grubs or whatever's been nibbling, keeping them safer.

thanks Change. I would love a green house but just don't have the space. Got a few germ boxes but nothing bigger.

Maybe I could make something around the pot ive already got.

Unfortunately aesthetics matter a lot to my girlfriend and housemate. was quite the battle to get the pots I wanted.

Everything loves to nibble on pere. Grasshoppers, caterpillars, dogs, kangaroos, rats... The leaves are edible for humans, so most things get into it... Do you have any pets?

tried a weak vinegar spray on the plants as I saw more little bugs. hopefully that wipes them out
