Well, I've started bringing my classroom plants home because the temperature ranges from the 80s during the day to freezing at night in that room and I don't think they can take too much more of that.
I've been checking each plant over carefully before letting sit near any of my current homeplants. One plant has a very mild infestation of bugs. It's not bad yet, but I know that they will eventually kill the plant, and try to infest all my other plants.
So, what is the vegan thing to do?
1. Kill the insects so that the plant may live?
2. Allow the insects to live and murder my plant/s?
3. Put the plant back in the classroom so that my other plants won't get infested even though that would be a death sentence for both the plant and the insects?
4. Give the plant away to a student who can swear that there are no other plants in his/her house and let that family make the decision? (Yes, I'd be honest about the bugs...some kids would find that to be the most interesting part of the plant.)
