This plant has white fly. The definitive test between this and powdery mildew which is also white is that if you shake the plant some of the adults will fly off. I normally recommend 5 ml dish soap to 1 liter water sprayed or rubbed on the leaves. Apply three times every 5 to seven days. If you are using this plant for cooking having soap residue on the ...

The seedlings are quite etiolated - the high sides of the box they're in won't be helping that, but regardless,you need to keep them out of direct sunlight, they're too small to cope with that at this stage. Given where you are, the fact that it's winter and daylight hours are short, that's most likely what the problem is, insufficient light. Seeds always ...

It is Fatsia japonica, an evergreen plant that can be grown outdoors as well as inside. It tolerates low light levels well, but it does need cooler temperatures in winter, as well as not being at all happy in overheated rooms generally. Information on care indoors here https://homeguides.sfgate.com/grow-fatsia-japonica-indoors-70510.html. Please inspect ...

I've tried growing carrots from seeds inside sealed plastic bottles with LED lighting. I've written up the project here. I dried the soil before putting it in the bottle so that I could control the amount of water present in the bottle. The main challenge I found was getting the amount of water just right so that the plant has enough water, but the soil ...

Fittonia likes humidity, heat and indirect light. The first two are essential, and there is some movement on the third as least important. Its natural environment is in a steamy tropical forest. A close substitute in a temperate environment is under the benches of a steam heated greenhouse, where it can grow in poor soil but constantly dripped on from ...

Google tells me that 'sopalin' means kitchen paper or kitchen paper roll. No, don't use that, its too rough. The best thing to use is either a paintbrush (specially a larger paint brush of the type that children might use to do a painting) or a blusher brush, or any type of brush used for make up for the face. I suppose an ordinary paintbrush intended to ...

It would seem not,though there is little research in regard to the health of any succulent plant should it not experience dormancy. There isn't much difference in the dormancy story between desert or any other type of cacti or succulent either; dormancy or partial dormancy can be triggered by periods of stress or drought, as well as the more usual cooler ...

I would use a micorfiber cloth or cotton to clean the leaves. Unless you use wet sopallin. Dry sopallin will not remove the dust

It may be an issue with your water. Are you using tap? Ive found Calathea definitely prefer filtered/distilled water. They are picky plants for sure.

I have 3 red cyclamen plants. Two of them I have had for about 7 years and they have never stopped blooming. The 3rd plant I bought about 3 years ago and it has never stopped blooming either. I do lightly feed them about once per month. I do not change their soil. Right now I have 22 fully open blossoms (on the 3 plants) and many buds. For years now I kept ...
