Q.Did I Make A Bad Purchase?

Zone 10022 | Kenny67 added on September 11, 2023 | Answered

I recently bought this Monstera from one of the plant wholesales in NYC. I saw new leaves and thought it looked good but since I’m a beginner I did not check for any bugs. After coming home with the plant, I noticed there are lots of white tiny things on the soil. I was thinking they possibly were spider mites but wasn’t sure. Could someone let me know what they are and what the best treatments would be in this case? Also, the stems are tangled with each other and I thought it may need a cut. What do you think? Thank you for your help and I look forward to hearing from you all. Best,

Unfortunately, without photos I cannot identify the issue. What I can do in the meantime, will be to direct you to some articles that will address pest control, and care of your plant:
