In growing herbs in pots, you may have seen those plant creepers that have formed in your plants’ main bodies, trying to grow from their pots or places in your garden. These plant creepers are part of the reproductive cycle of your plants, and they will enable them to create new and independent plants. This serves as a means for their survival, without the aid of pollination.
Unfortunately, these creepers can also cause issues both indoors and outdoors. About the issue indoors, they’ll extend their vines wherever there’s a possible place for cloning a new plant. If you have some plants that are placed near each other, and one of them can spread plant creepers, then your pots will surely get infected. To avoid this, prune them frequently, or you can place them far enough from your other plants so that they will not be able to clone themselves fast.
One of the things that’s quite surprising with these plant creepers is the speed in which they establish themselves. Some plants can clone very fast, which can infest your other pots even before you know it. If the new plant is being left alone, you’ll see that the plant may or may not retract the original creepers. This becomes an obstacle if you are to separate them.
If you have plant creeper products that you wish to keep, what you should do is transfer them to a new pot as soon as they’re separated from the original plant. You need to make sure that your plant has already established its roots before transferring it. There are also some cases wherein the core is really required. Those creepers that are able to breed through the planting of leaves are quite hard to remove once they have successfully spread.
To prevent plant infestations that are hard to deal with as you’re growing herbs in pots, you must control the plant creepers that are already forming. One way to do this is by pruning the plants that you have. Pruning is very safe, and it also promotes the growth of your plant as it will automatically regenerate the lost part. Many plants have creepers that aren’t dangerous. But, for some species like the poison ivy, they can infest a yard quickly. starting your herb garden, these plants should be eradicated immediately, including the root system to prevent it from growing back.
