Apostle attack

This is a picture of our Apostle plant. It is also a plant that it exhibiting a strange phenomenom. It seems to have little bitey holes all over it. Now I know that plants may start to show some disease or start to die and turn brown but bitey holes are not something that they can do themselves. Take a closer look below at the apparent evidence of self mutilation and self shredding.

Beau Beau. "Yes Mom?" Do you know anything about the poor plant's leaves exhibiting this sorry state they are in? "No Mom. Me an Angie nefur go near that plant. It am a scary plant wif all those arms hanging off it." Now are you sure Beau Beau? Because there also seemed to be some um, how shall we say, rejected, half digested, little chewed pieces of plant left in a little pile on the carpet. In other words, someone in the house threw up some of the eaten plant. Angie. "Yes Mom." Have you been eating the plant? "No Mom. I'm scared of the plant with all those arms hanging off it. It might wrap it self around me or something. Urp. 'Scuse me."

Well kids, some plants are not good for you too eat because it might make you sick. I will be watching this plant to see if it gets attacked again. It was a present from your Aunt. I don't think she would be too happy to see what's happened to it nor does she want you to get sick. So you might just want to keep an eye on it but stay far away from it. Ok? "Yes, Mom."

    That does look like a tasty plant. But I'm sure it was not the 2 of you that tasted it. You must have another poodin living with you. You better watch out for that one.

  8. Mom put my favorite snack plant on the fridge, and now I can't reach it. It looked very similar to your apostle plant, with the bitey holes and shredded ends..
