Maybe get a hold of some ladybugs? Those eat aphids, right? Also, I hope you cleaned out the vacuum because I’m pretty sure they’ll just crawl right back out.

Um, ok, please don’t feel weird. I vacuumed my hawaiian red ti plants. No kidding. We brought the stalks home from our honeymoon and I planted them in some pots. For some reason it seems like fruit flies LOVE the stalks. I read up on it and turns out they aren’t actively harmful to the plant like aphids are to roses, but guess who got out the vacuum hose? It was strangely satisfying. I HATE fruit flies.

**I will be getting bug spray next trip to Lowes.

@wbninja: I’m not grown up enough yet to have houseplants. And clearly I’m a little teenager-ish yet, because this thread posted right next to the boob-sex one and I was NOT thinking of vacuuming plants. LOL!

Yeah, I definitely didn’t have “plants” in mind when I clicked on this one, either! 😛

@indibee:  haha same.

My husband takes care of our plants! They die when I’m left in charge. I try, I swear. They hate me.
