i think ERINsaying neem oil will remove bugs and not hurt the plant, but if ants are eating the aphids,
i'd say let them eat until the aphids are all gone.. then you could re-pot the plant to remove the ants.

Ants don't eat aphids, they tend them like cows, using the sweet excretions from the aphids as food.

Not a situation you really want on your plants. They won't kill a Pv but I suppose a severe infestion could weaken a plant.  Once grown out to size Pv are generally pretty sturdy and shake off most infestations.

This is the way I made my propagation...
 in photo (2) the leaf cut in three is the one from photo (1) an viridis, the one that is complete is an Nexus.
I think I can take several clones from a single leaf from one I already take 4 clones just need water and an air pump.
In the last photo is the one from photo (1)

About 2 years old psychotria viridis. About to flower. Could it be male p.viridis? Or female? My p.viridis grows together with b.caapi as you can see in the second picture. Anyway, thank you Frog Pajamas for the leaves. Really appreciate it.

Wow, only 2 years old? Excellent work! Viridis typically don't flower until they are about four years old.

Looks like that specimen is a male type. And it looks like it IS flowering, not 'about to flower'. The flowers are really tiny.

Frog PJs got her leaves from me, and it's good to see you having success with the species.  ;D

They grow really fast provided with adequate sunshine and water. How to know if it is female and male p.viridis? It would be great if you could provide pics for female and male comparison. Thank you.

I'm going to be lazy here as I've seen the first few pictures on how these leaves were propagated. Bending the leaf in half vertically and planting the vertical fold in the ground just a little bit in my experience results in many more babies.... as each vein small or large will often produce a baby that way. If someone else has already posted that information my apologies for double posting. Again, laziness on my part.

Here’s something that I’ve done to encourage more root development. Hopefully later promote branching.
