Help me help my friend.
I may have mentioned my shade garden a time or ten. It was in my backyard underneath some mulberries. Early in the spring, something was eating the plants. There were holes in all the leaves and the coleus was stripped down to their stems. When the rainy weather stopped, most of the holes and stripping stopped. Fast forward to two weeks ago. The cold was coming and I transplanted as many plants as I could to save them. This was some of the 12 pots the day after I started the transplanting: A friend and co-worker loved the African impatiens (the ones in the pic with the yellow flowers). I had two and brought her one-- the one in this picture, as a matter of fact. She says the very next morning, all the flowers had fallen off. All the flowers have fallen off the one I still had but it took much longer than overnight. I told her it is probably transplant shock and to make sure it doesn't get too much direct sunlight. Today she showed me a picture of it. All the leaves on one branch are stripped and there are holes in the remaining leaves. Just like in early spring. But they were outside in the ground in the spring, this guy is in a pot. Inside an apartment. Any ideas on what is eating it?
