Seems to be attacking my canna lily and my bell peppers. Oddly the tomato right next to it seams untouched, as do the banana plants in with the lilies.

Caterpillars? Really weird how your lily leaf is nibbled with such precision!

I thought so too! There are a few like that, I think whatever it was ate through it while it was still rolled up. That's all that made sense anyway.

Ah! Makes sense.
Or slugs, perhaps? They don't eat tomato leaves...But if slugs you'd see the slime trails.

Hmmm, I didn't see any trails on the leaf. I'm going out of town for a few weeks, so hopefully they don't get destroyed while I'm gone. I'm not worried about the lilies so much, they have spread pretty good on their own, im pretty sure they will be just fine. The peppers though:(

Maybe I'll spray some bt before I go?
