Arabian Jasmine

United States Us

I have an arabian jasmine that got heavily infected with scales. In my attempt to save the plant I cut off all the branches, leaves and anything that I saw that had scales on it. Now all thats left is just a few stumps sticking out of the potting soil. Is there still hope for my plants? Any tips to help it grow?



hi there.
should be no problem, just be very carefull on the watering. try not to get the plant to wet, as you have chopped off a lot of foliage.
scale insects are really hard to control, so you may have to spray on something like provado ultimate bug killer.
normally works a treat.
