Dried beans in Mexico or Chile

Do they use more insecticides in the growing of dried beans than we do here in America. Do they have the same kind of regulations that we have here in let’s say California?

Brown spots spreading on my epy’s Leaves?

Hello, I inherited a large 10 year old Night Queen 3 years ago and have grown plants from the cuttings however they have developed brown spots on the leaves and around the edges on some of the leaves. I have followed the advice on watering, light, soil etc. Also tried putting cinnamon on the affected leaves but to no avail. Should I be cutting off the affected leaves or just leave them alone? The plant is very healthy apart from the little brown spots.

Dying grass

My family and I just transferred to Fort Polk, LA in Oct 2017, the grass was dead, I put fertilizer and grass seeds for shady areas. It did grow, however it died and looks exactly the it looked when we got here. Also in the front yard it seems spotty as you can see via my picture. I did agitate the ground before laying the above items. Please help me, I forgot to tell you that I am new at this.

Snail Identification

I have a tiny mystery multiplying in a pot of moss I'd like to discuss. Back in May I started growing carnivorous plants, and on a couple of occasions I found tiny black snails in the pots. I saved them and gave them a moss pot, looked them up, and found something similar (the Otway from Victoria Australia) that was carnivorous, which made some sense to me as these guys were hanging out with plants that catch bugs. I've maintained their care and their numbers have grown to about 10 to 12 at least. I've found individual babies a couple of times in the moss pot, so small they fit on the head of a pin! I haven't seen any get larger than 1/4" or about 6 mm. I've tried giving them grapes, fresh sphagnum, etc., but they never touch the plant material, even in their pot. They will latch onto freeze dried blood worms 5x their size, and enjoy freeze dried dapnia as well. I've also got a culture of Springtails living in the pot, so I imagine their carcasses are available for the snails. Does anyone know what they actually are? I should mention, many carnivorous plants come from places like Australia, South America, Africa, etc.
