Trying to identify this house plant. It has velvety leaves that are dark green & purple around the edges. The flowers are very small white pom pom shaped flowers. The leaves are fuzzy. Any clue what this is & if so I need care instructions because this one isn't doing so good.

Hi, I see that you are very knowledgable about impala lilies. I have been growing them from seed and some plants are now about 30 cm tall. Some of the leaves are going brown and dry on the very tips. Does that mean that its now getting enough water, or is it overwatering? I try not to overwater because I know that they rot. My gut feeling tells me that no enough water is getting to the root??? Is my theory correct?
Kind regards

Common names can be deceptive thus the need for the use of scientific names. Take the tea tree for example. There are two very different plants in Australia that I know of which are both commonly called tea tree. One being a tree in the Myrtaceae called Melaleuca Alternifolia from which tea tree oil is extracted the other also in the Myrtaceae family is a genus of shrubs small trees (Leptospermum) which was named 'tea tree' due to early settlers using the leaves from the shrubs as a tea.

Maybe you should go back to have them pull them out? Raw potatoes help get splinters out. You cut one and hold it at the site of the splinter. I don't know if it works on thorns though, and I think it would be better to go back to the doctor.

From which seeds did you get these thorns?

Cantaloupe Problem
Can you help me figure out whats wrong with my cantaloupe?
Google didn't really help me figure this out: http://s1110.photobucket.com/albums/h445/NoviLunar/Plants/
The larger one looks to me like it also has some kind of fungus/disease and both look like something tried to bite/burrow into them, but I don't know.
I've had other fruits with damage like this (I've lost at least 4 fruit in total), but they were covered in nylon and there was no holes in the nylon. I cut two of them open looking for bugs but found none in them and there was no bugs in the nylon.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I didn't know the big one was out there till today so it's been sitting unprotected on the ground for at least a few weeks.
There are cucumber beetles out there. I've seen less of them since I've sprayed homemade insecticidal soap but there's still some.

Also, we have squirrels, possums and occasionally rabbits, but I have never seen them mess with the cantaloupe, and since there was no holes in the nylon that covered the other melons I don't know how they could've done anything to them.

I don't know if this is related, but I've also noticed leaves with brown spots with yellow borders:

http://s1110.photobucket.com/albums/h445/NoviLunar/Plants/?action=view&current=Bush_bean_7033.jpg

Despite these issues, the cantaloupe plant as a whole looks great. It grew very large and made a bunch of flowers.
I can take more pictures and video. Any help would really be appreciated.

Answer This Question

Esselean
Basic plant porn: The single middle spike bit in the flower is the girl part of the flower. The other spike bits in the flower are the boy parts. The boy parts (stamen) make pollen and the pollen then travels by wind, birds or bee to the girl part of the flower (pistil). The pollen enters the stigma (top part of the girl bit) and travels down to the ovary where a new baby plant is created. Hooray! The petals are for attracting birds and bees to participate in the reproduction process.

There is really no safe way to get rid of the fungus, without hurting the soil for a few years. Stinkhorns aren't harmful, and they only last for a few days usually.
