You can try treating with Neem oil no more than once a week and only spray it at night or you can try spraying it with a soapy mixture. This is what I use for most pests but thankfully have not had to deal with these little devils yet... This mixture won't hurt your plants and can be used every 3-5 days. Would not suggest using it more often tho just in case of causing a fungal issue.
This is the only place I see them on the plant. If they are bad what are my next steps? Thanks
Bad bug. Very bad bug!! Aphids! Treat and quarantine immediately! They spread fast and can be VERY hard to get rid of!!
Make sure whatever you use, you spray EVERY inch of the plant and the top of the soil. They can hide in the tiniest nooks and crannies.

@WickedValkyrie thank you. He’s going to spend the night outside and I’ll go to the store in the morning. Tonight I’ll be combing through all my other plants
Good call on checking your other babies. Keep in mind aphids love new growth. That's their main target so they can be really hard to spot sometimes. Probably wouldn't be the worst idea to treat all of your plants just in case, but hopefully you caught it in time and they haven't spread. 🀞🀞🀞
(and sorry for spamming you. Lol)
@WickedValkyrie no! It’s so helpful. I do have a horrible case of the heebie jeebies now lol
Lol I always get the heebie-jeebies when talking about bugs πŸ˜…
@WickedValkyrie @Good I've never encountered these before, but feel much better prepared now should I find them! Thank you!!
Good luck with your babies!
