  Sickly Aglaonema
From: StellrJ at aol.com on 2001.09.09 at 18:33:54(7434)
I am writing in regards to the Aglaonema belonging to my employer, which are in a sorry state -- nearly all the leaves dead. Those in charge of these plants can not see what is wrong -- they only talk about how they have watered them -- so I examined the plants myself. One has mealybugs, the other has strange white webs. Tomorrow, I will advise the plants' owner of this condition, but I need some solutions to propose. I know to tell them to cut off all the dead leaves and stems, but what else? The plants live in a climate-controlled office, as do some so-far healthy Philodendron bipinnatifidum. (Perhaps I shall ask for a division for myself; these Aglaonema are growing in what appear to be groups, with many stems per pot.)

Who is this bloke Stella with a patient boss?
Watering? Spray Mealys & Red Spider? No the
solution.is to lay leaves & yourself horizontal
under water for a week, only the swamp Aglaonema
leaves will survive. Then neither the Naturist
nor his boss-keeper will have a problem.

Yours courteously
