Q.Can I Clean And Repot To Remove Spider Mite Infestation?
Several indoor elephant ear plants infected with spider mites. Ongoing for about one month, have been spray treating and it has helped but I’m not sure they are completely cleared. Can I cut them down, rinse well, and repot to end all spider mites? It is becoming too cold for the plants where they are quarantined and this is the last thing I can think of to help them so they can rejoin my other plants.
