Winca - how can i get rid of it?

Every so often it'll throw out long arching stems which root where they touch the ground.  If you keep a watch out for them and cut them back at the base that'll keep it from spreading any further.

Wildlife Ranger and Linda Layton - Hello to you both.

It would be better if you both started individual new threads  (Button towards top right) with the name of the plants in question in the title -  then people with relevant knowledge and experience will see your queries and be able to assist.

This is a more general thread dating back a few years.

He's also learnt to copy other poster's posts and try to pass them off as his own - see the Large Houseplant thread.


I'm sure the Mods will get around to dealing with him.

Id like to grow lemons if I had the room. It was quite sad throwing the cactus away it was still in the same pot although compost was refreshed over the years I remember it in the house always. But with all the cuttings its back to original size and flowered as usual last Christmas.

Think he's just learning to cut and paste Philippa, bless ...

Plant them now - they may flower a little later than otherwise, but they should flower perfectly ok.

They definitely won't keep until next autumn so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Good luck
