Thanks for this great artical!!! I just read it last night and discovered some mealy bugs on a philodendron a few moments ago. I've actualy never had the things on my plants before(guess I'm lucky)...but I have to say they really grossed me out...those fuzzy white blobs. I scaned the entire plant and only found 3 so I'm figuring they must have came with the plant since I just got it a couple weeks ago. I'll check again later as I don't want an infestation.


ps: I thought when I bought it that it would be great for one of our plant trades!

That would be a wonderful plant for one of our trades ^_^

If you only have a couple mealies a q-tip dabbed in rubbing alcohol works well too, they shrivel right up which is quite satisfying. If you decide on the Neem make sure you don't have the plant in the sun for a few days after.

Its growing quite fat so there should be a few cuttings I can send later in the summer!
I think I got most of them, I've only found 4 so far and haven't seen any more but I keep checking. If I find anymore I'll be sure to swab them with the rubbing alcohol!
