Just had a plant get spider mites for the first time 😓…I just threw it away… rip Mickey Mouse Alocasia…my Thai con and Florida ghost have been sitting next to it for two weeks sooooo….. 🥲

I used the rest of my insecticide soap dousing everything that shared it’s plant stand. I haven’t seen any webbing or signs on anything else. I use systemic and usually spray insecticide soap every two weeks, so I’m hoping this is an isolated incident.

This plant was recently purchased from a nursery and I suspected something funky was going on, I wish I had trusted my gut..
