I was so proud of myself for evading what seems like the longest list of possible infestations. Very few instances of mealies and possibly one of scale, which I swiftly took action about.
I seemed to have hit the plant pest jackpot. :/
I was watering the Hoyas set to spend a (short) summer outside...and I see some white stuff. I take the plant out of its pot and one of the mealies comes out to say hi. I just sat down after drowning the roots, taking cuttings, and carefully disposing of the soil and water.
I know they can spread fast. I double checked everything they were with but only fischeriana (might explain the aborting leaves) and cv Pinkie (which explains the stalled growth). Any ideas of how to rid them? I took cuttings because I usually prefer to just cut my losses (literally) instead of treating because I have so many plants.
Stupid question, but those cuttings should be free of this threat, correct? help or direct experience would be great.
