RE: mealybug


In the beginning the plant may show no symptoms.  As I remember with
African Violets, the plants just lost their luster and didn't perform as
well as they should.  You can usually easily check for soil mealybug by
de-potting the plant.  The very white mealy bug can be seen amongst the
outside roots and/or attached to the inside of the pot.
