I have had my birds of paradise for a while now. Several months ago I noticed a bunch of white spots on it. It looked to me like mealy bugs which I'm familiar with and began treating it regularly.
Whatever this is, it has greatly diminished. However I'm still unable to solve the issue and now that it is smaller it does not appear to be mealy bugs. The white spots don't move and aren't fuzzy. Is this a fungal infection?
I began by treating the plant with dish soap diluted in water to get the majority down and have been spraying in isolated spots I find with mixture of water, dish soap, and Neem oil.
Can anyone help confirm what is ailing my little buddy? Thanks.
