Spider Mites *shakes fist*
I'll start by saying that ivy haters need not reply! It's potted indoors and couldn't possibly spread unless my kitchen cabinets and flooring suddenly become conducive to growing!
That said, I've got spider mites on my newly planted ivy. I find that I tend to get pests on my new plants and the older, more established plants don't seem as susceptible.
So, the other day I came home from work and realized I was growing a spider mite farm. In my frustration after a long day, I drenched that thing in miticide. Yeah, way too much of it. So some of the leaves died from the miticide and I'm currently diligently removing those from the plant. There are still mites so what is my next step? Individually wipe down all 300 leaves??? Arg!
