I wound t move it.I have lost two because of moving. The only one that did ,was Nellie moiser which I put in water for a couple of days and re-planted with plenty of watering but not in winter time.
some of us are retired and just add it to the list of things to do
bad ventilation and pots with water in or leaks gives mould a good place to grow . empty any water filled pots and don't water to often (they don't need it ,the plants)
In only my own way, pulling them up and getting rid of the roots is the best way and cheapest and in the end best. once on top of the problem and kept in check ,no problem .
it may be the dreaded pampus or a reed that grows in very damp soil or ditches, use to cut it for displays(cant think what the name is) or it could be a kind of grass, if you have photo it would help.
slugs no doudt,
sadly round here for the last 5years I have not so much as seen a squashed Hedgehog let alone a live one. The birds seem to like fat balls and now seem to have gone off the nuts and seeds.
my garden use to have a duck pond at the bottom(use to be a farm around the corner)and we have found clay pipes and bottles and broken tiles and of course over the years lost toys that were my childrens.We also have a under ground spring and a covererd well .
from what I have seen they like to grow next to a wall and restricted roots and the fruit I have seen on these .I have miniature one and I know it does not like soggy feet and it does not like too much heat .keep faith and don't re-pot to often its does not like to much movement.
not me ,I have the same one I have had for years. I did re-plant it and it has grown a little.good and faithful friend !
