    Someone suggested Schultz mitacide/funicide/insectacide, but I can't locate this. Anyone else have other suggestions for getting rid of both mold and some unknown small bug that looks like a tick?

    anything based on neem oil will fulfill all those three functions. However, there are also miticides/insecticides that are very effective because the plant absorbs the chemical, so when the insect feeds on the plant, it promptly croaks.
    Hope this helps,
    Peter

    i suggested this awhile ago, and i got it from, home depot.

    the insects that look like ticks are still there, they apparently hatched from eggs in the soil. i have never, EVER seen them on any plants, only in the soil. they are quite visible so if they were on the plant i'd see them. i inspected the roots for damage-no damage. they stay to themselves and havn't hurt anything, so i'm leaving them alone. they are completely harmless and if anything, good fodder for the plants.

    have you tried totally submersing the plant in water for a day or two? i'd do that to kill the insects, then increase the air circulation to keep the mold away.

    AGH! THIS SUX! Not ONLY does the hardware stores (Home Depot, OSH) not carry Schultz, they don't carry any neem oil based products! Well, just going to have to do a good old internet search and buy it online...

    well i have a 75 gallon tank, and i filled it up to cover all the soil. there is a "hole" in the soil in one corner of the tank that i insert a manual pump into so suck out the water.

    this is how it works:
    layer one, eggcrate
    layer two, garden cloth to keep soil out of eggcrate
    layer three, soil.

    i flooded the tank for 24 hours, drained it, and they came back.
