    Tiny white things??

    So what do you make of these things? Thrips? Mealybugs? Aphids? Springtails? These things have also shown up on my D. adelae but aren't invading any of my other pots... yet.

    Sorry to make yet another thread about this. I read through other threads, and there were descriptions, but I could find no pictures - so I'm still not sure what I have!

    Depending on what it is, how would you go about treating this stuff? The Savage Garden seems to speak highly of Orthene as a general purpose insecticide. Anyone tried it?


    Thanks to SDCPs for these lovely D. capensis "Broad Leaf" plants! Sorry about the unsightly mess on the leaves... I just fed my plants last night.

    Well, these things don't move at all. They just kinda sit there and look ugly. By your reaction I'd guess that whitefly is a particularly bad pest to have? What would I do about it?
