Are these mealies or???
I just noticed something white on my cylindropuntia subulata (?)
Are they dreaded mealybugs?
Nothing seems to be moving, I chcked with magnifying glass too.
As a first aid I just sprayed with 70:30 mix of rubbing alcohol & water. Should they be out of sun for a while because of rubbing alcohol?
I checked all pots around, so far didn't see anything similar. But as a precaution - should I spray them all?
I googled how to control them, but I am looking for any first-hand suggestions.
