Need Help with Christmas/Easter Cactus!
I also am one of those who have been 'lurking' and learning. I have a large collection of plants in and out of our home. Thanks to those here I did a complete search of the plants and found the dreaded little white fuzzies on the underside of leaves of my ficus that I saved years ago from an employer. It thank goodness is in a room by itself. I believe the critters were eradicated. An inspection is done weekly and so far so good.
My problem now is with an easter cactus. I have several christmas cacti that I have had for years and now have a passion for easter cactus. And watch out curly spider plants you're next on my list! The problem is recently after many months of great health and new growth is a few are dropping leaves and one of easter cactus looked good on the outside but had softened and rotted in a stem close to the soil.
