yeah thats what I thought. I've just been squishing/scraping them. Only found 2 on my viridis today. Should be gone by end of the week. will keep up inspections for 2 weeks after They're gone to be safe.

Alcohol can make them easier to take off. I’ve used a paper towel soaked in alcohol to scrape them off. I don’t think neem is very effective for scale. Just pick them off and/or cut it back.

Pic of supposed P. colorata from an herbarium in Germany. Plant is a bit hurting at the moment but hopefully it'll pull through the winter.

right now I've just been scraping the plants clean of them twice a day. There are definitely fewer reappearing each day, but it is definitely tedious. I the viridis down to a few leaves to make it more manageable. The caapi seems most infected, but it is also the largest. It might also get a "hair cut" soon. It's definitely starting to showing off it's vine nature, but I'd like to keep it a bit shrubby. Might also be a good time for cuttings of it. Will update further.

Yves, thank you!

Shamichael, yeah, it's pretty chilly  :). I think I'm in 4b now officially, but we've had temperatures below that in recent years still.

Very cool! The D. illinoensis seed pods are super distinctive, so it'll be easy to tell them apart whenever they decide to go there.
