Hello everyone!

I have a cute dwarf pomegranate tree from my main greenhouse, and I love this greenhouse so much but it seems that when I get leafy plants they always come with white flies. Thumbs down

I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of them. I sprayed it down with warm sudsy water. Didn't work. Bought the white fly papers. Did NOTHING. Finally I bought a spray and it seemed to work. Now only a couple little stubborn ones are left.

HOWEVER, all of the leaves on my poor tree are completely ruined. They have these white weird things all over them now, and they are shriveled. Can I revive it somehow?!?!? I HATE these dumb flies, I just want to save my pomegranate tree. Sad Please help!

Thanks Smiling

I think you and the greenhouse should have these plants outside during warm weather where predators can access pests and take care of them the way mother nature designed.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Okay! But what should I do now that the damage is done? Does it look like it can be brought back?

It worked! It loves it outside right now. All new leaves, and even a bloom. In only a couple weeks! Hurray!
