Oh no😱🙈 I hate them! I use garlic brew to get rid of them, but Echeverias don't like to be watered from the top 🤔 Maybe @KelsiBriana has an advice for you? #advice

@natii Thanks for the tag! Oh, how unfortunate! I hate it when those things attack my favorites. I usually take a sharp needle or pin and kill the visible ones, remove the remnants and nests with cutips and an alcohol solution, and use homemade insecticidal soap to suffocate any that remain. There's also the drowning method, and neem oil or neem cake can be mixed into the soil as a preventative measure.

If applying alcohol or insecticidal soap to the plant, don't forget to keep it out of direct sunlight for a day or two, or its leaves could become burned.

@KelsiBriana has good advice. keep quarentined. mealies can crawl a very long way & live for a long time. neem oil helps but need to do for at least 3 weeks to get all eggs that have hatched. mealies also live in roots

@natii @KelsiBriana @moore.794 thank you all! I have separated it’s pot from the rest of my gang, removed what I could see and sprayed it with alcohol... as soon as I get more than a minute, I’m thinking I’ll repot it.

So this beauty is having babies..... but when’s a good “size/length” that I should separate them from mama?

Usually about one fourth to one third the size of the parent plant. It's optional though.

Well @dunnoukno I think you can call it the parent plant for now. Lol But it looks like a Echeveria 'Blue Atoll'
