Lily Beetle

Can I plant new lilies in soil that has had previous issues with lily beetles? If so, what treatment is recommended if they reappear?

ANSWERS

I would treat the soil with neem oil, as this will kill any larva that may still be in the soil. This article will help you if any of them reappear after you plant:

As long as it gets enough water, it can take temperatures into the upper end of of most area's summer. The hotter it is, the more water it will need.

Stargazer Lily, Tulip, and Mini Rose Bush

These three indoor potted plants were given to me. They have bloomed and are now beginning to go wild and lose leaves. With the lily, how do I transition these to clay pots? Do I place them outside or keep them inside in clay? They look as if they are beginning to die. They are wilted and losing leaves. The Rose bush is the only one still flowering, but I’m afraid it will begin to follow after blooms die.

Why do lilies fall over after they bloom?

ANSWERS

It is normal for them to bend over when the blooms start to get old. Once the flowers have been pollinated and start to set seed, they will naturally bend over, often all the way to the ground. You should even see the seed pod on the inside of the lily.

Black W/Yellow Stripe Grasshopper

This black grasshopper looking thing, is it a locust? It began small, 1/4 inch, now it is about 1 to 1/2 inch and my beautifully healthy lily plant is eaten away. They eat  and live on the leaves. There is a golfball size hole in the side of the woody stem. The plant is 5 or 6 years old. I squirt them off the plant but they are back the same or next day. I have had them as big as grasshoppers. Can you give me a natural pesticide to save my plant, if I can?
