I have an ill Fukien and need urgent help, I've got two problems.
Firstly it is infested with what I think are root aphids, although I'm not certain as I've not been able to find anything on the internet. It has really tiny grey insects too small to take a pic of which appear to be in the root ball. They do not fly and I cannot see any infestistation on the leaves. I've tried to treat these by re-potting it into fresh soil and with a mild insecticide as I read that strong insecticides can kill it, it seems to have helped but I've been treating it for at least 3 months every week without fail and now it doesn't seem to be having much any effect. Today I've noticed tiny worms underneath the pot and I have washed these off but I cannot seem to get rid of these bugs and I think they may be destroying my tree. Does anyone know how to treat these?
Secondly although my tree is flowering, I made a mistake of over-pruning branches some months ago and its not produced any new shoots since. How can I make it do this?
Thanks in advance.
