ORCHID COMES INSIDE
It's time, I guess. The temperature has been down to about 45 degrees at night and although my indoor plants aren't really objecting yet, I think it's getting a bit chilly for them outside.
I'm not really an indoor plant person, so I need all the help I can get with those plants. My daughter in-law, the family orchid expert, was up for a visit from Connecticut. I have my two orchids out on the deck where we were sitting, enjoying the day.
"I hate to tell you this, but one of your orchids has scale," she blurted. Hmmmm....
Sure enough, I went over to check the bottoms of the leaves, and there they were, the tell tale white spots denoting "SCALE"!
She instructed me to wipe down each leaf with a cotton swab soaked in alcohol, which I did. The plant looks good now. Could that one treatment have done the job??? I'm a bit afraid to bring it in if it's still afflicted with scale!
Anyone out there had any experience with this???
