So I of my gardenia is gone. the other has new leaves and is inside and I care for it the exact way as the Fukien tea and as all the others......yet this is the only plant with these bugs. short little black bodies and wing a little longer. They always come back and they came with it. That is why I went through the soil, changed it, washed the roots and pot, but yet, still bugs. So I have the formula og the alcohol an water with 2 drops dish drops. Is this truly a solution, or because my sister got this from 1-800-flowers, it was infested, though leafy and bushy. I brought it back from yellow and green spotted whit to nice dark green and got plenty of blooms (twice), that the bugs diseased the plant roots and it will die like the first, though the first had small brown edged blooms..they were already sickly looking.
is this plant a saveable plant, or do I run a risk of infecting only mu Fukien tea, but the hous and the new plants I am getting that will be starting in the House (1 Durant Dwarf Purple), 3 breeds of Cypheus)
