13-days worth of growth was destroyed.
I had started marjoram seeds indoors on December 2 and everything was going well... until a colony of ants completely destroyed my plants.
If I didn't catch one of the culprits carrying a cotyledon leaf, I would have never known what happened.
The pests also stole the seeds on the top of my soil that didn't germinate, forcing me to start all over again. This has never happened to me.
This time around I coated my pot with an organic insecticide that repeals the type of ants that invades my home.
They didn't destroy my centaurea cineraria (also known as "dusty miller" and "silver dust") that was right next to my marjoram.
