I noticed earlier that my pseudosasa japonica has a clear sticky residue on the leaves and its pot. Is this normal? It was potted on from from its previous pot bound state about a month ago and its been well watered. I read it elsewhere it could be a bug infestation but i can't see any.
I`ve found that i get the same thing on my Basjoos when they get an Aphid infestation. I`ve got a Pseudosasa Japonica and it`s certainly not normal for it to have that `sticky residue` on the leaves. I`d definately suspect some sort of bug infestation if it did. No harm in giving it a good spray of Pravado.
Yep I'd agree, had white fly infestation last year, my bamboo's were sticky. I blasted them regularly with a hose pipe, you could see the little critters flying about. When its dry again a good spray with provado, you may have to do it more than once. This worked for me, so fingers crossed
