Passion Flower Pests
My passion flower has been blooming for over a month now beautifully from a pot on a vine in my backyard. I noticed it just stopped blooming in the past week or so. I looked closely last night and found at least 25 black and orange caterpillars eating my plant! Help. Can I save it? It seems to be dying suddenly.

Hand picking the caterpillars is usually recommended, though you can also treat the plant with Bt or nemm oil. This article should also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/prevent-caterpillars.htm
