    I assume these brown spots were made by mites snacking on the epidermis.

    What to do? Before you tell me all about those wonderful pesticides I cannot buy here in Taiwan - are there any natural methods for nuking them? Chili/vinegar broth, stuff like that?

    Thanks!

    Yikes! I suppose you could always buy more mites and sprinkle them on the plant.

    I know that such predatory mite-eating mites are the only option for arthropod cultivators when their tarantulas/walking sticks/etc are infested with mites as pesticides would kill both the parasite and the host! Seeing as these are on a plant, you probably have more options if you don't want even more bugs (even good ones) crawling around.
