soap spray, how often?
Yesterday I noticed a tiny white bug crawling through the soil of my mint plant. I think it might be white fly larvae, but not sure. I only saw one, but I immediately made a spray using a few drops of dishwashing soap and water. Is this safe to use on plants? I've heard some people say yes and others no. How often should I mist my plants with this?
I haven't seen the tiny white bug since I misted yesterday, but today I saw a tiny (extremely tiny!) black bug. Is it safe to mist daily to ensure my mint plant is bug free?
My mint plant appears to be thriving and is even sprouting a baby plant (which is a shock to me as I feel like a beginner in growing plants).
Another thing I wanted to mention in case it makes any sense to anyone out there, it looks like I have fine, small roots growing on top of the soil. Any clue what this means? Perhaps they're not roots, but that's what they look like.
Thanks for your help!
