Bringing a Blooming Plant Home from Store
When I bring plants home from the store, one will lose its leaves. Nothing left! I know it's some kind of bug, but I don't know what to spray them with. It doesn't happen to all of them, just one or two. Can you help me?

Treat the plants with neem oil when you bring them home. That will take care of most bugs that could be on the plant. Here is more information:
I would also soak the pots of all the plants. Sometimes the rootballs get dried out and without a soaking, the actually repel water. If the store let the rootball dry out, the plant will die if the soil is not soaked.
