drastic measures, stupid mealies!!!!!
so i took drastic measures yesterday... ive been fighting to keep mealybugs and scales off my new hoya plants and decided that where they must me hiding while im spraying them is under the leaves that were half burried in the soil, so i chopped off all the lowest leaves on my plants and also removed any leaves from my hoya compacta (hindu rope) that were too difficult to get the spray into. the spray im using is a water, rubbing alcohol and tiny bit of dish soap mix... hopefully now ill be able to rid my poor plants from pests... does anyone think i went too far? do you think my plants might hate me for doing that now?
