Hi I need some help with my gerbera. It was doing wonderfully for a long time, then suddenly white fly. It lives in a pot segregated from my garden which is completely succulent.
I have saturated the leaves with sevin, but 4 or 5 days later it is infested again. The sevin is still fully coating the leaves as I live in CA an have no rain. I made the mistake of putting it on the ground 2 days ago and now it is infested with ants,pouring out of the bottom.
It has had 2 rounds of sevin and does not look happy. what else can I do? Please help. It is my only plant, my husband has the succulent garden. Can I save it?
