Why are my chives foaming?
When I cut the chives off my plant, the ends started to foam when I squished them to hold them. Is this normal and will it hurt to eat the plant? We only grow them in the summer. Thanks!
This question has me a bit stumped, I even when out a cut a few Chives to check this out!
They will drip some moisture if squeezed. I could not find any research that would find a reason for it to be foamy.
If you feel the plant is limp or smells bad in any way I would dispose of.
Spittle Bugs can cause a foaming residue on plants, but they generally do not harm a plant and can be washed away.
Here is a few links with more information.
