Answer: Insect and disease problems can spread from one plant to another if your plants are grouped together. This is often the case because gardeners collect plants and usually put them close to others in the home that are already doing well. Then, as you walk among the plants to water, you can help transport pest problems if you touch or brush against the plants. One solution is to mist your plants occasionally. Spider mites are generally more of a problem under dry conditions. You might also ungroup your plants, at least to the degree that the leaves are not touching. Hope this helps!
