Those are aphids, David. A little soapy water will kill'em. get some plain unscented soap and rub it under warm water in a bowel. Get it good and soapy then pour it in a spray bottle ans spray them.

Hi folks,

Since winter has been rough I've been keeping plants inside. They've been doing well however except for one plant that seems to have been struck with an outbreak of a pest I'm unfamiliar with, and seems visibly effected (though the leaf has bent over, it's not actually limp), and the leaflets never opened fully which I think is related to whatever these little things are.

The other plants in the room have a few of them but none of them are as afflicted with it as this one. Can anyone tell me what they are and most importantly, the best way to get rid of them? I'm unsure of what methods I should use as I've got a variety of aroids and don't want to spray something that could harm them.

I've attached a couple of pictures that should be good enough to help identify them (the brownish/black specs on the petiole).

Best Regards,

-----Inline Attachment Follows-----
