I bought this plant – an exotic Mum – from a guy who came selling these plants. The plant was healthy and it did yield for a while Then one morning I did not see it anywhere I searched – rather an odd activity – and there I found it in a hole. We had no bandicoots around but I saw a mongoose running around. The mongoose was really the culprit.
We have these animals roaming around but we do not mind them as they scare the reptiles but at a cost. They are famous for digging out plants looking for bulbs and tubers. But Mums do not have tubers. We tried to plant the cuttings of the plant but they did not last.
Atleast I have a photo to meet Kim’s pastel colour challenge.
Do you have pests that destroy your garden?
