Q.

Yellow leaves on my cyclamen

Zone Hudson,Florida 34667 | Anonymous added on January 13, 2019 | Answered

I was just given 2 Cyclamens for my Birthday and the one is developing more and more yellow leaves plus they came with a ton of little bugs that I believe are called Ghost Ants or Spring Tails. I looked up a home made spray of dish soap, alcohol, and water sprayed them and the bugs died. I set the plants to drain so they would not remain wet too long. They are in a window getting filtered late day sun. Temps in my room are about 75 degrees. What do I need to change. Thank You

The first thing I would suggest is using a pest control that will be less taxing on the plant's system. Neem oil, rosemary oil, and garlic extract are all really good methods. This collection of articles will help here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/
