Epiphyllum

Zone Gray LA 70359 | Anonymous added on May 24, 2018 | Answered

My epiphyllum is in a small pot on covered screen enclosed patio. I am getting ready to transfer to a hanging pot. However I came home after 3 days away & something has apparently been eating it. There are wholes in the leaf and also chunks out of the side of the leaves. Have looked and can't find anything that could be eating it. What should I do?

This could be a caterpillar that has dined on your plant.

You can treat your plant with Neem Oil, but the caterpillar may have moved on.
