I was in my greenhouse looking for pretty leaves today and came across this seedling. Last year this plant suffered spider mites attack. I sprayed it with Tetrasan. Unfortunately, older affected leaves will remain scarred. But new leaves will be clean and nice, if pests were treated and eradicated early.

This seedling is F1716 Phalaenopsis YangYang Zebra King (Ld's Bear King 'Ben Belton' X K S Super Zebra 'Peter Lin'). I am hoping to flower it soon this year.

How many times did you spray with tetrasan? I have neem oil also.

I spray once or twice. Tetrasan is systemic. It's important that after spraying you don't water heavily right away. Give insecticide time to work.
