I’m literally just coming up for air today, ready to share my news. I made the utterly ridiculous but common mistake of bringing soil in a planter into my grow room from my balcony. Big biiiiiiiiiig mistake.
It’s funny how you can look at something, like your plants and not see anything wrong. But then once you see one, two, three little pests, the full view comes clear. My poor little bonsai was covered in these tiny little scale bugs. I spent hours picking them off and spraying her down with cinnamon water, only to find that a week later there were more. I’m quite sure now that as eggs they are not visible to the naked eye but grow in time to be visible.
I have 7 flowering plants that are now fast-tracked to harvest early so I can scrub, sterilize, and prepare for another grow.
Anyone else experience this hateful and disgusting little creature?
