Q. Resources. Suppliers Of Seeds & Plants?

I relocated to southwestern NM from New England. Plant worlds apart. I am looking for herb seeds and flowering plants that are drought resistant, survive at 7,000 ft and in poor soil. Any other suggestions & recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Prefer to use native plants. Can you recommend sources for online purchase?

It sounds like the issue started with overwatering, and progressed from there. Overwatering can leave the plant open to infection, which can appear as drying leaves. Watering even more makes the environment perfect for the infection, and not so great for the plant.

I would treat with a fungicide until you see improvement. This article will help:

Q. My seeds have black on them then it eats the roots

It spreads rapidly like tiny brown things stuck to leaves; black growth on roots. I’ve been using foam till I can work out what’s going on. I get seeds straight out of potting mix, gently clean roots and leaves, then put them in foam. It’s spread quickly to other flowers and potting mix. I’m stumped. Hope you can help thank you

It appears that the seeds and roots are infected with fungus.. The photo of the crane fly may not be related to the fungus disease.

Here is an article with some guidelines for avoiding fungal disease of seeds and seedlings:

Q. thread-like hanging on plant with pink lumps on thread. Is this some type of bug?

One of my indoor plants has a long cotton-like thread hanging from 2 of the leaves. There seem to be pink lumps on the threads. Is this some type of bug? Any treatment? The plant seems in excellent condition otherwise.

I would guess it may be insect eggs. Whatever it is, go ahead and remove it with a damp paper towel. It doesn't belong on your plant. Here are the most common houseplant pests:

Without more information and a picture, I can only give you an educated guess. There are strange, parasitic plants called dodder. There are many types and their look varies but a common description is a thin, vine-like growth. Check images online and read this article for more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/weeds/dodder-weed-control.htm

Q. There Is A Question On How To Dig A Plug in A Grass Yard That Is Better For Not Killing The Grass When Metal Detecting. Some Say To

dig a three sided hole and use the other side as a hinge others say it doesn\’t matter either way. The thinking is it saves some roots to help. I have not seen a professional answer on this. My thought is it really doesn’t matter and what is killing the grass is lack of water after the plug is removed and put back in the ground. If there is a best method to help not kill the grass it would be very helpful to know.

Normally, what kills the grass is a combination of destroying roots, not removing air pockets when replacing the plug (tamping it back down will help), and digging when it is dry, or hot.

If you can avoid destroying roots by gently removing the plug, make sure you tamp out any air pockets, and water just a little, or do this on a wetter day, then the grass likely won't notice one bit.

The killer is leaving the plug in a state which will not allow full recovery, simply put.

Q. How can I make people separate organic waste?

Hi! My name is José, I’m a 25 year old Master student in Product Design.

For my final project I’m looking toward ways to make people separate organic waste.

In short, I would like to ask if you have any information about the topic, is there any information that the general public doesn’t know and that might trigger a mindset shift that makes people see that separating organic waste is not that hard.

(For example I recently have been separating different tiers of organic waste and I noticed that the bin with vegetable and fruit peels took longer to start smelling bad compared to the bin with cooked left over meat and grease. Another example is that if the bin is allowed to breathe it actually doesn’t smell so bad once opened.)

Best regards
José
