Does anyone else have trouble keeping these going? There are clouds of whiteflies and mine just don't seem to last. I got two beautiful ones for Mother's Day and would like to keep them healthy.

Thanks for the link Joan. Will keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best. It sounds like an infestation is hard to control.

My mother had a issue like this last year and the garden centre told her to spray it early morning with a mixture of MILD soap and water and wipe carefully with a paper towel. She did that and wiped it and that seemed to help for awhile.

Sorry, I posted this topic in 2 places, but thanks for the advice; will keep the soap spray at the ready! They are still beautiful and I think they prefer this cooler weather.
