Hi all!

Wonder if someone can help. I bought a cheese plant 1.5 years ago now and he's been doing amazingly.

Over the last month I've noticed some weird brown patches on his leaves. Have also noticed a some mealy bugs on the underside of most of these patches.

He hasn't been moved or repotted recently, and i don't think he's being over or under watered.

I'm wondering if it is the mealy bugs but there are only a few on each leaf and have cause quite big brown patches.

There are also quite a few patches that don't have any bugs on the underside of them

I also haven't seen any new growth (either leaves or aerial roots) over the last month which is very weird for him.

Have you ever seen anything like this, do you have any ideas or advice?

Use this to kill and get rid of mealybugs. I like the small med wipes best because you can get better coverage.

NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

How do you decide when to water and how much do you give it?

How far is it from the nearest window?
