Moldy G. Green Ice and bugs, oh no.
MY Gasteraloe 'Green Ice' has had this mold on it for awhile. How would you guys clean it up. It is in a Dish garden and it is the only plant that has it. The soil is old so it is a good year to change that out also. What substance should I rub it with ? I have sprayed fungicide of various types to no effect. I am thinking a 1 to 10 bleach or peroxide and water. Maybe just soap and water.
Second picture is my arch pest, The coreid bug. God I hate these guys. They give my opuntias unsightly hickies. They come in hordes and if I do nothing, I will find white leaky stuff all down the pads.. I hunt them when the sun gets low after work with my trusty spray bottle of Original Dawn soap. I take glee in watching their last gasps. If I find a grouping of egg casings hanging off a cactus thorn and I squish them to dust, I feel accomplished for a real sicko. I know that I have just killed 20 itty bitty babies with relish.
