order plants from peppers for the first time
Hi i need advice pleasee
this is my first purchase from peppers greenhouse, i oreder on the 4/7/12 they came today 4/13/12. i have mixed feelings. :( :)
i purchased african gardenia, gardenia vietnamese, chinese perfume plant. i have been dying to get the african G. and chinese PP. forever. the G vietnam was an impulse.
the plants arrived super healthy, with the exception of the the questionable african G. some leaves look dull nd dry.
i am almost completely satisfied....except there are stowaways in the soil which freakkkkeeedd me out!
so far i have murdered 2 ants 2 snails there is a third in there. two mealy bugs(they were easily found near leaves). nd the nastiest one is a baby centipede or milipede which ever( the flat ones)
so my question is... should i dump soil now because i dont want these things near me or other plants. or leave them be and let plants adjust. the bugs really bother me though.yuck!! i am going to post piks of these adorable tiny plants.
P.S feel free to offer care advice!
