how long to quarantine for snail eggs?
I got some plants last week, which had a couple of tiny snails on them.
I pulled out the snails, and put the remaining plants in a dish with water to quarantine them. What's a reasonable length of time to rule out additional snails/eggs on the plants?
They were about 1.5mm and I think they might be a couple of pond/bladder snails and two ramshorn snails. They've gotten bigger already, but still too tiny for me to positively identify.
The ramshorn snails I am ambivalent about. But I would like to avoid the pond/bladder snails if I can.
Do assassin snails eat either of these?
