Those mites sap a plant fast, especially in DRY heat. I use an indoor
insecticide made by Raid, which works quickly on spider mites. Plus,
increase the humidity with a gravel tray filled with some water under your
plants or a humidifier in the room, close to the plants. Mites don't do as
well with higher humidity. Test the spray on a plant first and see if there
is any adverse reaction for a day or two, but I have had no problems. Read
I first used this stuff when some potting soil I bought was infested with a
gnat larvae and the whole winter looked like I was going to have flying
gnats. One or two treatments with the indoor spray and the gnats died out.

Fellow and lady Aroiders....
I over winter my Aroids and other plants in my basement under plant lights
for the winter here in Portland Oregon.
I have been attacked by spider mites.
I have been washing the plants with the detachable shower head in the tub
in the bathroom. But the mites return. I am ready for some other
solution. I'll use chemicals, atomic weapons, what ever it takes.
