If you have buds aborting you might look around for this creature as I found some here.
Here is a link that might be useful: Tarnished Plant Bug
This may be the mystery brown bug I've found some of my plants this year. They have really damaged Ice Cream Emperor, causing bud drop and deformed buds. I even had an entire scape on that one die before ever blooming. Luckily, I have some rebloom scapes coming. I'm hope to see a few flowers from it this year.
Thank you dipsandtets. The article was very informative. I will be on the lookout.
OH my heavens1 I hope this is one bug that doesn't live in Florida. Fighting rust when we get it is bad enough. it sounds like it's controllable. (I hope)
