Nematodes - Houseplants Pests and how to Control them
Nematodes also called eelworms are microscopic soil-living worms whose presence is marked by plant collapse for no apparent reason; remove the plant from its pot and check for large, corky swellings on the roots.
- There is no chemical control for the eelworm or nematode. The only solution is to destroy the plant immediately by burning (do not dispose in compost heap), use only sterilized soil in future and obtain plants from a reputable supplier only.
