The Q&A Archives: worm

Question: I recently purchased a corn plant at Home Depot and I realized that that's a lot of worms came out from the soil. I purchased Ortho Ecosense brand 3-in-1 rose & flower care, but still unale to control the worm.

I did a small experiment by taking out the worm and use the Ortho but can't kill it. I am wondering what kind of worm is that. Please advice on what can I do next, thanks.

Answer: I don't know what types of worms are in your potting soil but Diatomaceous Earth will take care of them. It's readily available and is natural - it kills beetles and worms and can be mixed into the potting soil.
