Wow!!! I have mine with flowers now. They didn't get yellow but green. But I guess the coldness doesn't help 🤔

Tooth brush and water, a baby one to gently lift off the aphids I have one I use if you want to borrow. Very cool that it's flowering 😍

Won't the tooth brush be to hard? I've managed to get most of them... I'm having g trouble with them on a couple of indoor plants @slj 😐

I use it and it's fine just be gentle it's more that it catches them in the bristles than using pressure. I was having the same issue with my African violets it was the chilli plants attracting the in now the chilli's are out the aphids haven't come back but the tooth brush worked really well it meant I could get In to all the nooks withought damaging the plants

This one is old now I got it of a friend 10 years ago and he had it years before that. It got huge out grown the pot it was in so I moved them in a huge pot and left them alone in the conservatory near the window... It doesn't get to much direct sunlight for to long but it does get some and I hardly water them, over winter they go a very very long time with no water 😂 and are fine. If you swipe right on this picture @blocherr you can see what it looked like last year 👍
