Tiny bugs slowly killing Oxalis Triangularis

VincentGagnonJuly 18, 2011

I have very small bugs who are sucking up my Oxalis Triangulis life...I can't find what it is but I'm sure you'll know. I have this picture taken with a microscope at 200X

Can you help me with this?

Difficult to say what it is. But I wonder if you're keeping the plant too wet. It grows from tubers and can get quite dry between waterings.

Always hard to tell by photos. This does look somewhat like a
cyclamen mite.

Nope, wrong shape. Not cyclamen - check out the link.
