Tiny black bugs in one of my phals
Default Tiny black bugs in one of my phals

Hi there OB,

I've noticed over the past few days some tiny little black crawling bugs in one of my phals, i repotted this phal at the start of the year.

All the leaves on the phal look fine it has a new leaf growing and new roots but i can help thinking these little bugs are doing something to it, the bottom leaves have some black marks that weren't there before, is this little bug doing it?

I've tried to ge a picture of the bug and the leaf marks.

Yuk! Have you tried spraying with something, like Sucra Shield? It safely kills many insects.

Most bugs can be clearly with a couple sprays of rubbing alcohol. Just spray, let it sit for awhile, then wipe most of it off. It'll desicate the plant if left on too long, but a couple sprays weekyl for a month should do most of the trick. The Sucra Shield I've had some success with, but I find it's bug dependent.
