Hello Judy, I bought this Bromelaid a couple weeks ago (from the local grocery store) and gave a little water. now that it has been 2 weeks, I decided to remove the pretty packaging and set it in a drain dish to water it along with my other plants. To my surprise I found about 5 of these worms crawling around in the pot. Do you know what they are, or how to get rid of them? Should I put the plant outside asap? Thanks, ChadRead More
Hi Judy. I have an Anthurium Small Talk Red (Hawaiian Volcano Plant). The green leaves are getteing dry and dead on the ends and I was wondering what may be causing this. I have followed the instructions with keeping 1/4-1/2" of water in the dish it sits in, and it sits on a table where it only gets bright indirect light. I'm hoping you may be able to help me because this is such a cute plant and a conversation piece and I don't want it to die. BrendaRead More
Years ago my friend gave me this plant as a small potted plant but no name. Through the years it has grown about 3 to 4 inches a year and now has small growths like a peace lily flower unopened. The heighth is now about 5 feet and I have to put a dowel rod in to attach the branches as they would be on the floor because of their weight. I hope the picture comes through okay.Read More
Judy, I inherited this office plant about a week ago from a co-worker who was retiring. She didn't know what it was and neither do I. Searching your site, my best guess is a Swedish Ivy? It looks to be getting a big leggy and I would like to help it to thrive. Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated!Read More

I've had this plant for several years. It came in a dish garden as a small plant. As you can see it is big now and I would like to separate it into several smaller plants. Can you tell me what it is and how I should separate it? Thanks.Read More
