One day all was well, the next my plant is SWARMED with Witeflies! Hundreds and hundreds of these tiny annoying flies are covering my plant and they swarm in a cloud when I water it. I read online that a solution of Pantene ProV Clarifying Shampoo and water coated all over the leaves (front and back) is a recommended treatment. But the problem is this shampoo is being discontinued and I am having a terrible time finding it! One person on eBay wants $30 for one bottle! No, thank you!
So, I have tried what I have on hand. I made a mixture of Herbal Essence Degunktify (which is a clarifying shampoo) and water and went to town. I sprayed and they swarmed. In my eyes, in my hair and up my nose! Uck! But I think my plant is pretty well coated. Poor thing, already leaves are scumming to the treacherous whiteflies.
I guess I will check back tomorrow and see how the swarm is doing… anyone have any ideas for me? I am open to suggestions! HELP!
