Scale on Moonshine

Posted by akrrm NJ (My Page) on

I purchased a 1 gallon pot of Moonshine in May online. Received it and repotted it, separated the shoots and potted those. I just noticed it had a large new shoot and two smaller ones. I also noticed the main plant had scale. Should I remove the shoots after I treat the main plant or just leave them? Also, this plant was near some of my other sans, should I treat them as a precaution? I checked them and don't see any scale.

Thanks :)

Try spraying with 50-50 dillution of Windex, wait 5 minutes and wash off. This has worked for me even on Hoyam, cactus, etc. I would watch them closely, and if you see active infestation spray. Norma

How interesting. I didn't know Sans could have scale. I was prepping my Moonshine Sans outdoors today to be ready to move back indoors when the weather changes in a few days and I noticed creamy corkish looking patches on some of the leaves. I thought that it looked like scale but dismissed that thought because I didn't know it was possible. I'll have to look again tomorrow to make sure I've removed the offending plants from the crowded pots.
