A couple weeks ago I brought home a violet from the grocery store and I have had it in isolation. Last night I was looking at it under a magnifying glass and saw an insect crawling across the surface of the soil. It was skinny and kind of long. It was going about the rate of an ant. I think I remember that I could barely see it when I looked at it without the magnifying glass. It was tan. I squished it.
Do you have any idea what that could be? I didn't see anything thing unusual on or under the leaves or the stem.
