Piggyback Plant

I've heard that Piggyback plants are highly susceptible to mealybugs? I grow orchids and have been told to keep the mealybugs off my orchids I should grow piggybacks between the orchids. Any truth to this?

Piggyback Plants are not any more susceptible to Mealybugs than any other indoor green plant.

Good growing conditions and sterile tools when working with your orchids are good practices.
This is best way to prevent insects and diseases.
