update and more questions
So turns out I found the Critter that was eating my rose of sharon plants at 5 am when I woke up to get a drink and saw a big fat caterpillar crawling around on my floor! So it's a relief it's not a mouse or palmettos (since they are after all pretty common in south florida) but I know that one caterpillar could mean a bazillion others hiding somewhere else.... I'm afraid to check under my carpet lol So as for the questions: 1. I seem to have an awfully hard time growing any sort of squash here...all of my plants get the same dusty fungus that you can brush off with your fingers. But the fungus moves so fast that within a day one whole leaf is covered and it dies :( Are there any natural things I could repel it with from something I might have around the house? (i've tried spraying it with very strong chamomile tea....it worked, but not enough at all) What about vinegar? maybe that would be too strong? 2. Also, Could bean stalks vine around the bottom of a corn plant and not kill one another? 3. What's the dang trick to getting Coffee Beans to sprout!!!? I've been trying and trying to get my Kona coffee beans to grow for about 6 months now and STILL absolutely nothing! Thanks in Advance!
