Found mealy bugs on this and the ogre ears in the pot I hope I caught them soon enough. I just used alcohol to wipe them off and then sprayed it with alcohol. U think thats ok? @sunlovin

I’ve fortunately never had mealy bugs that I’ve had to treat. That’s what they say to do, but I can’t say for sure because I’ve never tried it.

I can't believe u never had them before. Thats amazing. I can't understand where they come from especially when the plants have been inside all winter? So weird. @sunlovin

Maybe try giving it more light,’or was the growing point damaged? Is a nice arrangement.

Its in quite a bit of light now and everything else I have out there isnt stretching too bad. I was thinking that is what it had to be tho although I dont know how much more light I can give it without the rain getting to it I moved it to the top rack tho well see what happens @kylers
