Dear All,

This is probably a well visited topic and a novice questions (but if it
looks, walks and acts like a novice....)  Anyway I recently planted a
Habanero in a pot on my apartment's front patio. It was doing
beautifully until yesterday. Coming home from work I noticed many of the
leaves were eaten away and a thick, clear mucous like substance was
interlaced on the stems of many of the leaves. Can someone please tell
me what is doing this?

I tried the de-bugging mix suggested yesterday of 1 part dishwater soap
and 4 parts water. Will this work? I did find a snail wrapped around one
of my Anaheim plants as well and used the Space Shuttle cure for it.

Thanks for your help,
