A Jade plant in my house had root mealy bugs, I am a slight novice at pests, so I hadnt recognized the signs. I got rid of the tree,(the poor thing had only one small root), and now I am wondering if my Ficus could have been infected as well.
The Jade Plant was in the same room as the Ficus, actually with in three feet of the ficus. When I researched about Mealy bugs one source said that the larva could crawl to another plant.
I see no cotton webs, or bugs on the leaves, but one source said that an early sign was slower growth of leaves and shoots. The problem... I don't know the average growth of ficus. So I need help to know if I do have another plant infested with mealy bugs.
