Posted on August 07 2021


If you're keeping plants at home, it's almost inevitable at some stage you'll see some funny little things on your plants here and there. What are they? And how can I get rid of them? Okay, so there's no need to panic. 

The conditions indoors for pests are ideal. There’s warmth, light, and moisture. Being observant will help you catch infestations early and treat them before they get out of hand. So in this blog we'll run through some of the common pests that you might find on indoor plants and introduce some ways to get rid of them.

The best approach towards indoor plant pests is IDENTIFY > ISOLATE > TREAT > REPEAT

REPEAT

Most of these bugs run through a 3-5 days breeding cycle, so do remember to repeat the treatment around every 3-5 days until the bugs are gone.
