bugs in me baggies!!
One bag that has three cuttings going seems to be doing fine, but I notice what looks like fungus gnats or little black fruit flies zooming around in there. I regularly open the bag, try to shoo out as many as possible and then close it and blow in to re-inflate it. Are these little guys going to do any harm? The cuttings have been in there for a good couple weeks now and I have only had to ditch one from that particular bag.Aside from that, one is showing growth in the bud eyes so it is obviously 'doing something'.
Also, another cutting in a different baggie seems to have some stowaway bugs setting up shop. Aphids from the looks of them and under the leaves are little oblong yellow eggs(?)
Can I spray insecticidal soap on my bagged cuttings? These are cuttings I don't want to lose. I imagine defoliating the cuttings to get rid of the eggs would not be an option as it would leave a naked stick.
