Black bean aphids, are also known by their scientific name of Aphis fabae. These black bean aphids are pictured colonising dwarf French bean plants, that were grown in Carbon Gold All Purpose Compost, for my 2016 Peat Free Compost Trial.
This newly opened Masdevallia decumana bloom has been damaged by snails. I have found a number tiny snails inside this terrarium, but there is clearly more snails to find, and re-home outdoors. Pictured on the 7th December 2016.
