Jordan, have you tried Eco Oil on the aphids? That is what I am using at the moment. They won't leave my Dend. Kingianum alone. I must not be killing the eggs. Do you think?
So you said previously, you used Confidor aerosol. This is the best? Did I read that the aphids lay their eggs in the potting mix? The Dend. that is infested with this bug is in flower, the poor thing looks a mess. The reason that this orchid was attacked, was I moved the pot out of the old shadehouse, which was in poorer light than the shadehouse it is now in, resulting in a little bit of sunburn on the leaves, and that I think is why the aphids attacked. On a plant that was feeling a little bit down. Oh, cute kid in the Avatar, is that you?
