Common pests to look out for on your houseplants:
These tiny white heart shaped flies are piercing and sucking insects that can weaken a plant, they like colder weather. As a general rule, make sure your plants are healthy and they’ll be less susceptible to an infestation.
It’s difficult to see these sap-sucking pests by eye, but their damage is unmistakable. The upper sides of leaves will become mottled, before they shrivel up and die – fine webbing is sometimes visible.. They like hot, dry conditions so mist plants regularly to raise humidity.
Scale insects are sap-sucking creatures that look like tiny brown limpets. Over time, they form large colonies and will weaken their host. They usually appear on stems and under leaves.
Shake the bottle well, before thoroughly spraying the upper and lower surfaces of all leaves. To keep pests at bay, spritz once a week. If you have active pests then spray every three days for two weeks, making sure to spray the insects directly. For best effect, continue to spray once a week as this formula will help to strengthen your houseplant back to good health.
