Houseplant Pest Control

Buggies in Soil.

Anonymous added on August 28, 2017 | Answered

I asked two yesterday. Instead of hot water to control collembola, would the roots fair well with DME soil (5%) mix? Image is of one 600X. Also Mealy bugs abound. Cheers.

We recommend you remove the old soil and repot your plant with a good quality potting soil. Remove as much of the old soil from around the roots as you can.

Discard the contaminated soil.
