Description:

Growing some Betony in pots and this little strangler has got hold, could this be a dodder, or another strangler? If so, should I save the Betony and replant the strangler somewhere more beneficial? Don't want to kill it if it is.If not I'll dispose of it

The dodder seems far more

The dodder seems far more interesting than the Betony! But if it is indeed the introduced Yellow Dodder you may want to get rid of it before it attacks all your veg plants! I'd be tempted to watch it flower first though.
