A passionate beginner. Love houseplants. Learning the basics of plant care with help of this amazing GT community.
New shoot growing. Meanwhile I can see very tiny white bugs moving in the soil in this pot. Not sure what to do about it.
@suzyw I don't know. Can't I just spray some pesticide?
@suzyw You know what I did. Removed all the soil. Rinsed the roots. Repotted and buried a clove of garlic in the new soil. Might have killed it with that but feeling like a pro 😎
And sounding like a pro @zeeshan !
@suzyw Can I put a garlic clove in each plant as a preventive measure?
Can't help with this problem but the plant looks healthy!
@gjones So were its roots. Felt like plastic 😄
Thanks @suzyw It feels so good when you have someone to blame ;)
Sometimes they arrive in the compost. I'd do what was suggested and buy a new bag of houseplant compost to repot it 😃
Also make a garlic tonic to water your plants as this will repel them to you can mist them with it too. 👍
I will. Thanks @hayleyaj
A very good plant for beginners!!! They're tough. 😊
@brightcolours Difficult plants, on the other hand, make you make more mistakes and hence learn fast 😄
