These fluffy white bugs you're seeing are mealybugs, and they're not friends with Tree Aeoniums. Look out for their cottony hiding spots, and then it's time to spring into action with rubbing alcohol or insecticidal soapβ€”picture it like launching a surprise attack. Whenever you bring in new plants, it's a good idea to keep them separate for a while, just like suspects in a lineup, and if any are infested, they need some alone time, like a timeout.
