Poinsettias

Zone South central florida | patandbruce73 added on April 13, 2017 | Answered

I have several poinsettias, one for quite a while, and has large white bumps on the stems, plus little white specs on the petal/leaves. the latter looks like aphids, which I have found on three other plants that are newer. Also have a angel wing geranium and calla lillies with the same spots. If aphids what is an enviornmentally safe way to save my plants?

    Treat your plants with Neem Oil.
    Neem Oil is organic and safe for people, pets and bees.
