I thought I made it through getting rid of the mites on my Alocasia but they seem to be back 😩 any ideas on how to best get rid of them?
Alocasia Polly Plant
Last watered 1 week ago
Ugh! Polly’s! I had this issue with my Polly and I was doing good w keeping up with them until I stopped being consistent.
Weekly, when I watered, I would put the plant in the shower and rinse all the leaves. Top and bottom. This was its watering and cleaning. After the leaves were rinsed, I wiped them again with soapy water and then rinsed it again lol. The most important thing it to make sure they’re in higher humidity and you’re wiping the leaves. Some people use neem oil too instead of soapy water
is right. My Polly has (had?) spider mites and consistency is the key. I spray mine down with Natria Insecticidal Spray￼ every other day. I'll keep it up for about three weeks.
Thank you both! I guess I thought I could let it be but knowing I have to keep it up makes more sense
