Aphids on mimosa pudica


By Wend

i bought a mimosa (sensitive plant) at the eden project and he is doing ok but i've noticed he has a few aphids. What can i use to get rid of them?

On plant Mimosa pudica



Spray it with soapy water (diluted down) or run your finger and thumb along the stem and SQUISH if you can bear it! or. of course, take it outside and spray it with Bug Killer.

Thank you for that I will get myself a spray bottle today and give it a go. I have been squishing them, but as he is sensitive and closes up i feel guilty about disturbing him!!!!
I know weirdo!!!!
Thanks again
