Hi Katy. Wanted to ask if you have ever had mealy bugs on your violets? I read that they are common to these plants. Have treated them with alcohol and it keeps coming back. I finally threw one out but am propagating it’s leaves. I usually keep them apart from the other plants. Should I try insecticidal soap on the others. They all have it. Thanks. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @gjones

I haven’t had mealy bugs on any plants yet and nothing at all on my African violets. But I’ve had spider mites on some of my succulents. I use insecticidal soap on all infestations. Two treatments about 2 weeks apart. If its a bad infestation, I just cut that part of the plant off. Hope this helps.

Thanks Katy. Just treated my Flaming Katy with insecticidal soap as I found some on it too. It had been floppy so I repotted it and cut it back. I knew it had a little and have treated it once. I guess they sucked the life out of it. The crazy thing is that it was in a separate room with only one other plant. This is frustrating. Thanks again. I am in pest control mode now 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @gjones

I sat with a Qtip and vodka (no alcohol) one day and cleaned mealy bugs of an inside plant. Earlier this year I found some on my lilies. A strong hose spray and a couple applications of neem oil took care of them. I was a bit surprised because I figured it would be much more difficult to kill them

Thanks Leslie for the info. I have read they are very hard to get rid of so it is promising to hear of your success. 👍😊 @lesliecole49

It did take longer to rid the houseplant bugs and I did put it in quarantine. I was way upset with finding them outside, I thought 'oh no, this is going to hurt!' I got lucky, I hope you will too

Love it Cyndi. That helped me a lot. I just realized recently that if you type on a tag it brings up all the times that tag was used. Your info is appreciated so much. #slowlearner #cyndirocks @cyndi

Looks like a couple are getting close to opening now! So does the foliage form in the springtime and then die back and the crocus flower stems form in the autumn or late summer?

Yes. The foliage is lush and shiny. Lasts a while then die back. Then only the stems come up in September. Very neat. 😊🍁 @gjones.
