    The infamous chameleon plant, it is a rapidly spreading creeper. In need to know how to kill it. I have tried various weed killers and no luck. I tried the concentreated Roundup on the chameleon and that just made it angry. I spread 3 layers of plastic over the ground where they live and they pop up around the edges.
    Does drowning/overwatering kill it?
    Should i use liquid nitrogen? Does acidifying the soil damage the chameleon? How about a base? If so, tell me what will be the most effective.

    Chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata) is semi-aquatic and would love the extra water!
    Pramitol is a soil sterilant. It would take about a year to breakdown in
    the soil. It will kill all vegetation not just the C.P. It's available on E-bay.
