    Katydid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniidae Looks like a grasshopper (but with huge antennae).

    I would suggest planting it right away, seeing as it was shipped bareroot it might dry out. Oh, but be careful, it might eat away at your other plants leaves.

    katydid are awesome, but i would definitely remove it from your grow area ASAP unless you want to start seeing him pull the magical disappearing plant trick.

    Ah, so that's what those are! I get them a few times a year in my house, usually at night. The cats love chasing them around and eventually eating them.

    Last summer a Cicada got in - they were in heaven with something that moved and made noise; swat, "buzzzzz", swat, "buzzzzz"....
    It went on for hours - before one of them ate it!

    I can't find the critter. The plants look unaffected. We do have a cat, but I doubt she's done anything to him. It's a mystery.
