Houseplants looking sick? The plant doctor answers your questions

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

Dentist

Debra from Palmerston North Central

I went to the Dentist a week ago now to have a tooth pulled, what a nightmare that was I ended up having to get the tooth pulled out and feeling most of it. The dentist said he had put the most amount of numbing stuff in my mouth and that I would really just have to put up with it as it was half way lose, so what was i to do!!! he pulled it out and I ended up with 2 stitches in my mouth and a big bruise on the outside of my mouth and with 2 and half days off work....... Tell me I didn't think anyone went through this sort of pain at the dentist anymore or am I just being a sook, and should I change dentists????? Look forward to your replies :)

Traffic at kidney shape roundabout

Quinton from Milson

Has anyone else experienced the major traffic backing up on both Gilespie and Tremaine coming into town? Its like our city exploded with traffic. I think the council might need to think of alternative traffic management there as they constantly need to patch holes there too.
