Put your rubbing *** (69 cents a qt. at Wal-Mart) in a small
mister bottle from over in the *** hair stuff aisle. Then spray
all the scale you can see. Wipe it off. Also spray any place that
is a connection between leaves and canes or small tight creases.
Spray the bottom of the plant as it goes into the mix. IF this is a
severe case repot and spray the roots. The *** will not harm the
plant. IT will evaporate very rapidly and other than tickling your
nose and smelling for a bit will not harm you. Then every day check
the plant. IF you see more do it again. If anything touches this
plant, spray it now. Keep a close watch. IF you don't find anything
for 2 - 3 weeks your problem is solved.
