What you'll see: Stunted plant growth; white, cottony appearance on stems, undersides of foliage, and nodes (where the leaf or bud attaches to the plant's stems).


Management: Quarantine your plant. For less-afflicted plants, remove individual mealybugs by handpicking, washing, or wiping them off with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Wash with a mild soapy water solution using a soft brush or cloth to help dislodge the bugs.
