I moved the Philodendron Xanadu to the front porch of my house which is enclosed and it is doing much better and I will move it indoors completely soon. It gets tiny aphids mainly on the back of the leaves. I have sprayed it with a house plant pest spray containing fatty acids its (been in the garage a long time perhaps it’s gone off.”)as they seem to keep coming back. Can you reccommend a treatment please?

Its just one plant and the best answer is probably to just wipe off the greenlfies from the young shoots and leaves.

Be careful with fatty acids on house plants as they can cause scorching in dry arri, warm air and sunshine.
