|I bought two Anthurium plants yesterday and the soil is infested with tons of small Santipede like/soil grubs?? with lots of tiny feet. What do I do to get rid of them. I love my plants but I live in an apartment and they are starting to crawl out. HELP!

|Centipedes love moist potting soil! I would repot the plants in fresh soil, brushing off as much of the old potting soil as you can to remove the pests and any eggs that might be lurking in the soil. Best wishes with your plants!
