I'm from Texas, I live in Costa Rica. Straight succulent and cactus fiend. I also like discovering wild edible and medicinal plants.

16.4.19 This guy all but died when I tried to treat it for mealies. Only those those outside leaves remained. It's making a nice comeback. #succulentlove

I think it's Graptoveria 'Silver Star', but I'm not sure as I've never seen one before. Either way, I'm excited about it. Help me? @natii @Yollymac @succulentwiki @KelsiBriana

@KelsiBriana Thanks, I think so too. Thank you for the ID @Yollymac. Here's the thing. I just saw some little mealy bug looking things in the center which I didn't notice when I bought it. Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

@KelsiBriana Right. Back in Texas I would use my neem oil and all would be fine. I guess the caveat I didn't mention was, such things are very expensive in Costa Rica and I don't have a lot of money. I suppose what I'm asking is if you know of a way to get rid of them at a discount, or should I just go ahead and get the neem oil?

@KelsiBriana Great advice, thank you so much. How long afterwards should I avoid direct sunlight, a few days?
