The seller of my areca palm says it is black fungus and it won't kill the areca palm. However, it is spreading all over the stems. Here is photo. I cleaned some off already with damp cotton ball.

You can plant them outside if you have a space for them, but you need to harden them off first, by placing outside during the day for 2 or 3 hours the first day, increasing the time you leave them out over a week or so, until they're out all night (preferably a milder night). After that, they can be planted in the ground. If you want to keep them in pots (...

Fungus gnats infestation can be very persistent. I had them too, until I bought some nematodes online (I sound like a cheap commercial, sorry for that). These nematodes kill and eat the larvae of these insects. You can buy them online, just google it, you'll have to dissolve them in water first and then water all your plants thoroughly with the solution. ...

This looks like thrip to me. More details are included in a previous answer here. When I was doing interior landscaping if a plant got thrip the most effective solution was to dispose of it as fast as possible. This was the best solution for these reasons: the adults fly when disturbed and can feed on a wide range of plants the larvae live inside the leaf ...

I think it is mildew too. But it is only a small spot yet, so if you remove the affected leaf you might prevent spreading it to the rest of the leaves. Usually mildew comes with hot and humid weather. Try to get the plant on a ventilated spot.

The only way to find out is to try. Save several seeds and put them in water for a week; change the water daily so they don't go mouldy, and keep them somewhere that isn't cold. After that, plant them into potting soil, spaced apart, water the pot and stand it on a sunny windowsill. Water again only when the surface of the soil feels dry to the touch. ...

I have only been able to get big XL aloe heads from the ground or outdoor planters which is the most beautiful. I would cut the top off and replant both with the cutting deep to get its beauty back. Move outside. Water well.

They like some bright indirect light, to low light. They also need humidity. These are best for indoor terrarium since the humidity builds up. Bathrooms is where I keep mine. Misting it will help too.

I just did the soaking method with dish soap. I had them on a jade plant I took from an outside garden. I have had them on this plant for a while and finally made the decision to do something about this. I also scrubbed the stems with a toothbrush. I rinsed them very well in laundry sink and them put them back in the bucket over night I still had some in ...
