73 and still gardening

Kelly’s mishap

This is an update on my Anthurium scherzerianum ‘Kelly’. Yesterday, I found my plant in this state:


…something munched the mottled spathes. On further inspection, I found the culprit; it was a brown slug we called dila-dila in vernacular (a descriptive word for tongue.)  Also, I  saw some slug eggs among the potting medium. tsk..tsk.. and to think I thought this garden critter was harmless…
