I bought a Poha berry plant at Ko’olau farmers yesterday, and to my dismay, upon re-potting i discovered a colony of ants lived below my new plant. 🙁 Today I tried drowning them out, but am scared to go so far as to drastically over water my plant. I may just have to re-pot it again, but let the root bulb sit in a bucket of water for a while along with the dirt to get the little buggers.
Normally I am fine with ants, but when I re-potted one bit me, and I do NOT need biting ants as part of my garden. *Sigh*
