Diseases, symptoms and pests in your plants

When a plant is weakened by a disease, there is a good chance that pests will abuse the plant. There are all kinds of reasons why your plant can get sick. This can be caused by too little or too much water, a bad soil, too much or too little sunlight, too much wind, too little or too high temperature exposure... So it can take some effort to find out what has made a plant sick, and what needs to be done about it.

We recommend that you regularly check the leaves on all your plants, especially the underside. If you find something that doesn't belong there, you can apply something early on to get the plant healthy again. If there are many pests, spider mites or aphids on your plant, it seems that the plant won't survive, but we do recommend that you try out a few more control methods.

Treatment of your plant

Treating a sick or weak plant is possible by following a few steps. We give you step by step all the information to help you get your plant healthy again.

Remove as much of the contamination as possible

With a damp cloth or with your nail you can try to remove as much of the contamination from the leaves as possible. Are leaves or entire branches too contaminated? Cut them off. By minimizing the contamination on the leaves you improve the recovery capacity and limit the growth of the contamination.

Give the plant a shower

Make sure the soil is covered with foil so that no moisture can reach it. Put your plant in the shower! With lukewarm water, make sure that it is washed clean of vermin. This is an effective way to remove the pests from the plant, but be careful with the spray strength, depending on the strength and size of the plant that gets the shower.

Place the plant separately from other plants outside

In order to prevent contamination, the plant must be set aside from your other plants. For recovery, we recommend that you place the plant outside where it will not be in full sun. It should not be too cold, otherwise it should be inside anyway. Putting the plant outside is a good way to combat spider mites.

Application of chemical treatment

For a chemical treatment of your plant, you can find various agents with us. If you choose to do this, you must follow the instructions carefully. After completing the treatment process, you must rinse the plant clean.

We also advise you to make a good treatment yourself. Take 300ml of water in a spray bottle and add a capful of Spiritus. Also add a tablespoon of green soap to it. Make sure it is mixed well. Use this product regularly to spray the leaves.

Repot the plant

We recommend repotting the plant in a new, similar pot. Make sure that the original soil is kept to a minimum by beating out the roots. This is a good opportunity to check how healthy the roots are.
