Re: Root mealy bug

Hose off as Tony says, let the roots dry, dunk the roots in meths, wait 2 minutes, and rinse. Then pot up. The mealy bugs will be gone or dead. Hopefully the plant will survive. :???: Anyway, I have tried this in the past, and it seems to have worked. One or two plants at times have even had a bath ...

Re: Feeling full yet?

Tony,
you have more than the maximum permitted number of this plant. I'll dispose of the excess for you right away. :grin:

Re: Succulents on TV again

Assuming this is the Surreal Succulents who sell (used to sell?) on eBay, I was always put off by the fact that their photos obviously had the saturation boosted to make the plants look more colourful. I like to see what I am really getting.
