Plant identification

seeds like mad doesn't it. But not enough of a plant to be a nuisance

 Yeah. I hope we'll see some more photos of this as it grows.

I can't see any fungi of any sort, where are they?

your pic is Fireglow, Anni but the OP doesn't look like any euphorbia to me

What is this and what should I do with it?

Posted: 05/04/2017 at 09:16

to upload a photo, reduce the size of the photo as the site doesn't accept large images and start with the camera icon on the right above the typing box. Essential if you want to know what the shrub is and how to treat it. If it had white ball shaped flowers earlier, what you're seeing now will bracts maybe, not more flowers

Growing above a soakaway?

Outflow from a septic tank?

Where was consensus formed. A septic tank soakaway is several feet down. What kind of 'nasties' do you think a vegetable might take up? They won't absorb bacteria or intestinal worms and you wash root veg so anything that might conceivably be on the surface is gone. 

We've got too sterile and frightened of our own shadows and s**t

If you cut it down it will grow back unless it's dead

no quick fix, the upper part is dead and needs to come off

New Lavender Wilting

I don't know if it's the same where you live but many plants bought here have been grown on quickly in very protected conditions and are 'soft'. They need introducing to reality slowly. I'd pinch the tips out of that and make sure it's not completely dry. Same with total sun, it may never have seen that before

If something is growing in a pot it will need to be watered where it might not if it was in the ground. That inside pot look like one of those that breaks down when it's planted (in theory) that only works if it's wet.

Apart from watering in I have never watered a lavender, I don't like to see them lush and green. But mine aren't in pots.
