Something is eating away at these two plants

Photo from Jackee Holder

I purchased these two plants for my office and within days all these tiny holes started appearing on the leaves. I didn't want the pest to spread to other plants so I placed the two plants onto my balcony. But now it is getting cold I need to bring them back into the office. Do you have any suggestions for how to treat and take care of both plants?

Can anyone recognise this plant?

Question from Jeremy Dent

Grateful for any help. It was a gift and is growing in moss but has doubled in size. Could it be transplanted to a pot and compost?

Can anyone tell me what plant this is?

Question from Val

It's a hanging houseplant, green leaves with red, it flowers in October with pitcher like green flowers, and has long thin seed pods in April, which burst open with fluffy seeds. Would be great if someone can tell me what it is. Thanks in advance, Val

Yuccas

Question from GILL FOX

I have two yuccas which I grow in doors by a south facing patio window. They are well established, approx 1.5m tall. Just recently they have been producing a sticky substance from their leaves which is playing havoc with our flooring! Is this normal for yuccas or am I doing something wrong? Gill F

Why is my lemon tree losing its leaves?

Question from Paula J LaPierre


I have had a potted lemon tree for 18 months--putting it outside for the summer and keeping indoors all winter (I live in Montreal, Canada). Of late it has been loosing leaves a lot though it is still blooming and I am fertilizing the blooms by hand. Most advice says leaf drop is usually caused by over watering but that is not true in my case. What else can be wrong? Thanks, Paula

Anthedesia Pink

Question from Brian Langbridge

I have an Anthedesia Pink which is very happy in our bathroom.
The plant has got several flowers still on it but a lot of 'leggy ' leaf stalks.
Can I trim back these stalks to make the plant more compact?

Can anyone help me identify this houseplant

Comment from Simon Vivian

This beautiful and unusual house plant has been sitting on my mother-in-law's kitchen windowsill for years. Can anyone help identify it. Photos taken in February with plant flowering. Seems robust as it has been given little care.

Does anybody know where I can buy a Pilea peperomioides (Chinese Money or Missionary Plant)?

Question from Lisa Scott

I've seen them looking gorgeous on Pinterest but am having difficulty tracking one down here in the UK.
The RHS website no longer has any suppliers listed either :(.
Any pointers would be very much appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation.
