Hello, I grew a sweet potato indoors and lately it's gotten infested with some type of pest. At first I thought it was aphids so I made up a dishsoap + water solution and dipped the leaves in. That seemed to help a bit but they've come back even stronger so wanted to make sure I've got the correct pest / treatment.

Thanks for your help!

Take them outside and they will leave the plant. I use Cold pressed neem with a drop of dish soap for most of the plant pests. I spray every 3 days to make sure i get the freshly hatched eggs as well as the adults.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
