angels trumpet plant

My angels trumpet plant is watered as it should be often when the soil is dry, but the leaves have all turned yellow. It is also covered in an orange mite, which I don’t know how to treat. Please, can you help? Would I be able to plant this outside? I think it’s an angels trumpet but have learned because its flower stands upright, it might not be! Help.

You have a datura flower; more information here: [1]
Leaves turning yellow is usually a sign that plant isn’t getting enough water. When you water, allow the water to collect in a saucer (hopefully the pot has drainage holes,) 1/2″ of water will do no harm, no need to empty saucer. Water again when the soil in the bottom of the pot is slightly damp — use a pencil, dowel, or kebob skewer to test as if testing a cake.
Re: orange mites — do you see webbing like spiders on the leaves and stems? If so, those are spider mites. If the bugs have attached themselves to the stems and leaf veins, they are probably aphids. You can deal with either by spraying neem oil and/or insecticidal soap.Just be sure to do the spraying 4 times at 7-10 day intervals. This article tells you more: [2]
