I have spider mites! Any one else able to get rid of them?
13” pot with drainage
Last watered 6 months ago
I used Captain Deadbug
if you want to make something to fix it at home, mix a spray bottle with dawn dish soap and water :)
neem oil is effective but smells really awful to some people. the dish soap solution mentioned above works well too. for minor infestations, you can put your plant in the sink or shower and use water to clean off all the leaves. spider mites thrive in hot, dry environments, so make sure to mist often and keep the humidity up.
