Mysterious bug/fungus? Half-dead fuchsia
Hi, This is my first plant, so I'm pretty clueless about what's happening. There are small fuzzy green dots spreading across the whole plant. A friend said it sounds like bugs but I have never seen them move and don't see any legs. About half the plant looks dead (flowers dropped off, leaves wilting) and getting worse by the day. I just sprayed it with safer soap. Should I clean up the dead flowers and leaves from the pot or cut off the dying stems and leaves?
Other details: It's in a pot indoors with a west-facing window (no other options). I've had it about 6 weeks. Initially over fertilized with miracle-gro, then under-watered, then possibly over-watered. Like I said, my first plant so I don't know what I'm doing!
I hope this isn't a repeat; I searched the FAQ and forums and didn't find anything. I really appreciate any tips! The fuchsia is a gift from my girlfriend so I want to keep it alive.
