Q. I received a beautiful exotic for Mother's Day but this morning found 2 aphids on it! yuck! How to how do I get rid of them without harming the plant?
A. For just a few aphids, we recommend simply removing them with a cotton swap or spraying them off with a strong stream of cool water. If you find that it’s a continuing or larger problem, use insecticidal soap. You can use Safer’s Insecticidal Soap or make your own with 1 teaspoon mild dish detergent to one gallon of water and spray on plants.
