    Unless you want to uproot and repot the plant you will have to go for the systemic insecticide method. It is very effective and will give your plants some lasting protection, even if only for a month or so. You could try handpicking them off but it is unlikely that you would find very single aphid and they reproduce very quickly. Aphids are known to be pregnant with young even as they are born themselves and don't need a male aphid to multiply.

    ^ That is the best method if you can get your hands on it. No I'll effects on any of my plants from it. Just the aphids [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
