Pregnant Onions got attacked..HELP!!!
While I was gone yesterday, one of my guinea pigs escaped and made it's way over to the bottom shelf of where I'm keeping some of my smaller plants under lights for the cold months and ate the tips off of my pregnant onions....
Ok, so I have 4 pregnant onions in one pot...the biggest one she just ate one leaf, the smaller one was just the leaves, which I know will eventually grow back, but two of my onions got not just the leaves eaten off but a small part of the tops, a very small part of the tips...
do you think they will be fine?? I'm hoping that they'll just be deformed for awhile and eventually regrow new leaves....what do you guys think
The batteries in my camera are dead so I cant show you a picture, but imagine you took a dull knife and cut off the leaves with about a half an inch of the onion off with it...thats kinda what it looks like.
I just need reassurance that they'll be okay, my heart sinks everytime I look at it...and oh yeah, the guinea pig is fine, no ill effects. And I've stuck a good tie on their door. My two Shih Tzus dont care about the guinea pigs, they dont chase them or even give them a 2nd glance, so I told them they make bad guard dogs, they're suppose to protect my plants while I'm gone LOL.
