Hello Korina,

Some time ago you posted a picture of a plant grown hydroponically with soil mealy bug. I would, with your permission, like to use this picture in an article on these bugs to be printed in AV Mag.

If you see this message, please post your permission here.

Thanks very much.

Nancy, hi. Sorry I've been gone so long; I'm recovering from a icky head cold.

Yes, you have my permission to use my photo. I could email it to you if you like, or post it in my Flickr album.

Speaking of freaky things showing up where they shouldn't, I just posted in the Gesneriad forum about fungus growing among the roots of my S. speciosa!

Korina, nervous about the rest of my plants

Thanks for the permission to use the photo, Korina. It's on soil mealy bugs, by the way and your picture shows very well what they look like.

Also your photo proves the point that a plant with soil mealies can also be in great bloom!

Send a pic with your problem speciosa. Maybe we can get a diagnosis.
