The Q&A Archives: Variegated Schefflera

Question: What should I be using and how often to ensure that my new schefflera, hardy red oleander and jatropha outdoor plantings resist pests? I am in Southern Florida near Naples.

Answer: As long as your plants are healthy, they should not be magnets for insect pests. Simply check your plants on a regular basis. If you notice a problem you can hose the hitchhikers off with a strong stream of water. Carefully monitoring your plants is your best defense against pests.
