: I noticed that there are small caterpillar looking worms crawling on the soil of my plants and they sometimes crawl out of the pot and onto the floor. I have a 9mth old and don't want him to get a hold of one of these. How do I get rid of these nasty worms? Also, it looks like the soil is growing mold of some sort. PLease help. Thank you.

Hi Vanessa,

You could try this site by clicking on 'Houseplants'.

For an earth and human friendly solution take a look around here.

You might need to contact your local extension service. They might suggest changing the soil in your plants and washing the pots in hot soapy water that has bleach added.
