How To: Identify problems with snails & slugs

Identify problems with snails & slugs

Snails and slugs can really be a problem sometimes if you are a gardener. They feed on plants and can be considered pests, sometimes even getting inside your house. They are identified by their tell-tale slime trails. A bad infestation can be very hard to deal with. However, specialized cleaners or fertilizers can help your garden snail-free. If your indoor houseplant is fading or showings signs of withering, you can do several things. One is to transplant it outdoors so as to allow it to flourish, or cut the stems of the flowers and let them regrow. Hanging plants can let you know they need more water by their signs of droopy leaves. Leafy plants require a lot of water, so make sure your plants are getting adequate hydration. A large plant, once dry, can be hard to re-water. One way is to water the soil a little bit at a time until the potting is moist again, or to take the plant out of the basket and put the pot in a dishpan, allowing it to soak water as needed.
