Help with spider mites? on a rubber plant
Let me start this out by saying that I'm a plant moron and really don't know anything besides watering my plant. I have a rubber plant that I've had for 8 years or so and all of a sudden the leaves started changing color and falling off. I looked at the plant a little closer one day and noticed that there were really TINY white specs moving around on it. There also appeared to be some webbing (not a lot just a few strands here and there). From what I have read I think that they might be spider mites (but it says that they are reddish). I bought Garden Safe 3 in 1 and have sprayed my plant twice. After the first time I thought that they might be gone but they came back. I sprayed it again yesterday and when I checked today I found a few more crawling around (they were REALLY REALLY tiny). The leaves seem to be getting worse. I don't know if its the spray or the bugs or both. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
