Growing morning glory

Zone tropic wet/dry season | 2013yaqeen added on August 30, 2015 | Answered

I have a morning glory plant that has white cottony pests and is now drying slowly. Can you still treat it or do I have to up root the plant? If it can be treated, then how, and how to prevent it after treating it? I look forward to your reply and thank you. Regards Serina

    This is likely an infestation of Mealybugs. You can treat with Neem Oil, it is safe for people, pets and bees!
    Treat the plant weekly until you banish the pests.
