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?
I have a Parrot Plant (indoor) it is infested with white fly .I have sprayed continually and even washed each leaf and stem with the spray but no avail . Its still infected and even the floor around it gets sticky .what causes white fly and how can I get rid of it.
A small beetle is killing of a house plant, can you suggest a treatment after re-potting with new fresh compost.
I've got vine weevil in my indoor pot plants. I've seen some adults & got rid of them. What can I use to control them? I've got a lot of indoor plants & don't want to throw them out especially a Ficus that I've had for 10 years. Would it be best to repot everything & use the nematodes in case any larve remain or to use a chemical control.
I have flies in the soil of my house plants and now see small maggots in the soil also. What do I do to get rid of the problem? Will they spread to my orchids?
Many thanks on your advice on preventing slugs from getting into my pot plants in the greenhouse. However any advice on removing or getting rid of slugs already present. I have been resting my Christmas cactus outdoors and will be bringing it in shortly please help me get rid of any potential slug infestation of my house !! Many Thanks Pauline Byrne
