Flowers often suffer from aphids, ticks, and thrips. In order to save the violets from adversity, the peduncles are removed from them and the entire green part is sprayed. The procedure is performed 3-4 times with an interval of 4 days.
The soil in the pots must also be thoroughly moistened with a solution of the drug or even replaced with a new one.
It is advisable to supplement the solution with Solvent-Gold (according to the instructions). It facilitates the distribution of poison among the leaves.
Treated plants are temporarily cleaned in a darkened place, otherwise unsightly spots may appear on their leaves.
Fitoverm effectively saves orchids from ticks.
To save the plant, act in the following order:
- The flower is pulled out of the container and the container is treated with a strong solution of potassium permanganate.
- The roots are carefully freed from the substrate, washed under mild pressure of warm water, and placed in a weak solution of the drug for 10 minutes.
- The leaves are well moistened with a solution, after which the plant is moved to a dry, shaded place for a day.
- Then the flower is planted in new clean soil.
The culture is susceptible to infection with thrips, ticks, whiteflies, and aphids.
Lily leaves are wiped with a solution of the drug on both sides. This causes death in gnawing insects after 6-8 hours, in sucking species after 1-2 days.
The last treatment is performed after three weeks.
On the leaves of ficus, reddish-brown and dirty yellow spots are often formed. These are traces of the activity of scale insects.
The greens of the plant are wiped with a soft cloth dipped in a bioinsecticide. It is useful to alternate treatments with Fitoverm sprayed with tobacco infusion.
Do not forget to generously spray the soil around the plant. Just do 2-3 treatments with an interval of 1.5-2 weeks.
