    Any Plant/Flower experts - How do I get rid of these micro (slugs) on steam - Pics

    Hello,

    I wanted to ask if there any any plant/garden/flower experts, if they could please help me and offer some advice

    I noticed on my plant, in the stem's there are these black slugs/something which is appearing on the stems. Its small black bumps. It seems like a slug or spider has laid many eggs and stuck them on the stem.

    What would be the best advice? Thank You

    I will include some pic soon - See below

    - Is the best way to cut of the branches?

    Thanks

    You mean stem, not steam.
    Try spraying with water and washing up liquid.

    Thank you

    Normal kitchen washing up liquid?

    Thank you :)Normal kitchen washing up liquid?



    ​Yes, well diluted, about a teaspoon to a litre - not that you will need a litre, but you get the idea.

    Looks like scale insects to me. They suck the sap out of plants and will eventually weaken the plant or stunt its growth if left untreated.

    Yep, they don't like it, and breaks down their skin surface. Just a drop in a mug of water measurement, then spray them all. Repeat next day.
