How to get rid of Pachysandra (bean shape, rash) can be a long, difficult process. This plant, with roots in the ground and spreading underground, is a perennial. It thrives in humid climates. It tends to grow horizontally, towards the light. The flowers are large, white-colored, up to four inches in diameter, with the petals tapering to a point at the base.
There are, however, several effective home remedies one can try before resorting to extreme measures. Dig it up. Digging it up is difficult work, but it’s environmentally appropriate, and it usually works well even in small spaces. Cover it over with plastic.
If that doesn’t do the trick, you might want to try to cover it over. Get some black trash bags, roll them up and tie one end to a tree branch. That way, any excess water that might drip off onto the floor will drain away from your pachysandra. Put the bags over the affected plant.
Chemical approaches to how to get rid of pachesandrasia are rather crude and unproven. Some of the active ingredients in mole repellents could also be toxic to plants. While there are several natural, alternative approaches to the problem, they’re generally not discussed because, obviously, they’re safer.
How to get rid of Pachysanderia requires more than just digging up the plant and covering it; it also needs to be done quickly. If you wait too long, the roots could colonize the soil surrounding the plant and get even stronger. You’ll only have a few hours to fight them off before they start to grow out again. This can happen if you leave the plant wet or partially submerged in water for a few days.
When you dig it up to remove the pachysandra, make sure you wear latex gloves so that you don’t get any of the sap on yourself. It’s best to get rid of the plant right away because, once it starts growing out, you’ll have a battle on your hands with hundreds, maybe even thousands, of root systems to combat. Don’t underestimate the effort it takes just to get rid of a single leaf.
Finally, I’d like to touch on what you should do with the remains of the plant. You can use pachysanderia as fertilizer by taking the dry twigs and putting them in a spray bottle with water. Then you just let the solution sit for a couple of days before using it on your garden soil. If you want to avoid any pachesandrasia seeds from germinating, you can put the remains in a plastic bag and throw it away.
These tips will help you understand how to get rid of pachesandrasia if you find it growing where you live. Make sure to act fast before it spreads and overtakes an entire lawn. It might be easier to take action if you consult a trained arborist who has experience dealing with this type of plant. That way, you can be safe while still helping out the environment. Good luck.
