On Saturday early in the morning I went to check my plants and place them in a place on the terrace where it gave them more sun, then I noticed something very strange in one of the plants as a kind of insect that was camouflaged on the stem and stuck to one of the buds, when I visualized well I could see that it was a caterpillar, then I went to look for a precise tool to remove it from my plant, when I surgically returned the capture and began to spit out all the sap, it even looked quite overweight, fat from so much feeding on my plant. Then I could understand certain bites on the leaves that I had seen a few weeks ago, but I didn't think it was a caterpillar, in fact I hadn't seen it until that day. I think I also influenced not to detect this plague before, the days so gray and rainy that did not give me a good visibility of the plants.

This worries me for several reasons, first there could be more hidden caterpillars, then I began to check the plants exhaustively, even to clean the poop that is nothing beneficial for the buds, I did it with a needle and a napkin so that everything fell there, but I believe that I detected in time this voracious plague, because I would have lost my plant, since this insect would have fed totally on it and in passing would have infected it, product of its waste which are harmful and can even cause Botrytis. The caterpillar I put it on a plate even thought it was dead, but not after a while began to move, but even with the damage it did to my plant, I decided not to kill her, if not punish her, look for a plastic container and built a kind of prison, it would be difficult to escape and as you can imagine will starve, in contrast to everything he did, she tries to escape, but with the structure I did can not do it.

Now I have to have the view of the hawk in these last few weeks that remain of flowering plants and both the Guano de Murciélago that has been the most powerful, as well as the Te de Banana has nourished my plants very well, I'm thinking whether to give one last fertilizer of Guano de Murciélago or just leave it as this and continue to feed on what the earth already has, I have some time to decide, fortunately the other plant did not see any pests and the buds are still fattening, so here in the attached publication some photos for you to see how the plants look right now.

Cultivation teaches us a lot and only through experience can we fine-tune our management, ability and ability to become experts throughout the journey we travel, so self-cultivation is a culture that as we develop in this art, brings us incredible results and vital knowledge.
