To save or not to save?
I had 4 oleanders now 3. The best one in the largest pot has had a suddenly moment. In less than a week white fluffy sticky stuff covers tons of the plant.
Normally I try to clean every bit off & put out & bring back inside months later. Too much going on so I just threw it out. Some new leaves were brown & dead so quickly.
The other 3 are ok & well away from the infected one. Sad as it was 10 yrs old or thereabouts.
Was it worth saving?

On plant Nerium oleander



Probably - if it was indoors all winter, sounds like mealybug or scale infestation, and a spray with an appropriate pesticide would have resolved it.
