Do you have ants in your plants? If so, you might be curious to know what they’re up to.
Fun Fact of the day:
Some leaf-cutting ant species in Central and South America maintain their food supply by forming a symbiotic relationship with certain fungi. Worker ants search for leaves and bring them to the nest, where they’re cut into small pieces. Mixing these crushed leaves with their saliva, they then add small bits of fungus tissue to the mixture inside a designated chamber in the nest. The fungus produces filaments which are harvested and fed to larval ants, or eaten by adults.
With that, the ants cultivate their own food source, and as soon as one garden is too full of fungi it’s time to build another!
