And then

And then the scale came back. In a room where I hadn't seen them previously (husband's office; the plant was the parent Pereskia aculeata var. godseffiana). Posting may be a bit off and on for a while, as I try to determine the extent of the problem and figure out what to do about it.

I'm also setting aside some time to pound my head on my desk, curse the day I was born, and that sort of thing.

Oh dang! You have my sympathies! Scale sucks.

Ohhhh...that's nasty. Sorry to hear this! I hope it's not too extensive.

Sorry to hear it! I don't know if it would work for scale as well as it does for mites, but I have had really amazing results using Forbid spray on my sensitive calatheas (ornata, mostly). It dessicates bugs that suck sap from your plants. It's heavy duty, so take your plants outside to spray them- if you decide to go that route- then re-spray in 2 weeks. Good luck!
