Hi fellow house plant people!
My question is about my newest house plant, a hoya compacta. It was my birthday this month and I thought Id treat myself to a new plant so I went to home depot and I was so excited to see a hoya compacta! Ive been looking for one forever! So I took it home and 3 days later saw that it has mealybugs :(
I was SO sad! Mealys killed my last hoya so Im pretty scared they'll kill this one too. Ive heard that this hoya is pretty hard to rid of mealys. I got some bayer bug spray stuff for it and have sprayed it once and will spray again in 7 days. Im keeping it away from my other house plant. Is their anything else I can do? Will putting it outside help? I live in southern California so its reasonably warm right now.
