Basil plants attacked by bugs

bugs
root-nodules

#1

Hi there!

I realised there were some whitish looking bugs feeding on my basil and have tried to removed them with neem oil. I still find a couple Everyday when I examined.

Could I check at which point should I just discard the plant? Currently they are still looking okie except for the stems that look bruised or have black dots after I removed the bugs.

Please, add another picture of you problem. Then we will know better what we are against with! :slight_smile:

I wanted to add more but new users restricted to just one pic :slight_smile: im not sure if it’s a mixture of root nodules and bugs issues I’m experiencing

For the attached pic, are they root nodules? The subsequent smaller “white spots and yellowish crust” I find on a daily basis at growing points I didn’t manage to take pic of them.

Another pic for reference :slight_smile:

Hi,

thanks for the pics. These are definitely root nodules and normal to to your basil plants. You don’t have to fight them. On the contrary, you can make cuttings to multiply your basil with almost zero effort, since it already has grown roots on it.
