Container Bird Of Paradise Plants
Q.

caring for my birds of paradise

Zone 34237 | nieceebren added on August 8, 2015 | Answered

I have 2 varieties, potted on my lanai and facing the west side. Worried that there is a white bug or "mealy bug" attacking them. I washed them with soapy water, only hurt the plant. Can't seem to get rid of "IT." Please Help?!!
