Hello to all from newbie..
I've owned a vft for around 7 months now, and she seems to be doing ok..she even survived my letting it flower..
I have pretty much identified the pest on her as as thrips, they kinda look like very tiny soil specks, but they move around. I'm not sure if they affect her or not, but recently the traps seem to die right before they open, right around the time I start seeing thrips on them.
I've read some info around, but it's not really clear how to get rid of them. I'm not sure if I should use some pesticide, or should I submerge her in water all night?
