I bought this lotus plant few weeks ago.....this plant will bear pink lotus flowers. Actually, I was looking for the white lotus plants but such plants are not available here... :(
After a week this plant was under my supervision....it has shown great progress which made me happy. But as soon as it grows more leaves......I notice there are some bugs attaching on the stems. I was really frustrated....I even see some eggs and larva floating on the water....as you can see in the following picture....
Have you ever encountered the same case with your lotus plants? If you do....please share some tips....thanks in advance.
Paging ----> CathJ ....please do help me [@_@]
I have actually googled up for the tips and how to take care of lotus plants but I could not find the exact case like mine.
What I did?
I sprayed my lotus with the water-based Shelltox! (^_^)
The leaves are not affected and more baby leaves are growing. I notice some bugs have dissappeared but I can't be happy yet. Will keep on doing some close observations...
