Money Tree 2

Money trees come across as low-maintenance. My parents have had one for years without any trouble. But I’ve found out that money trees can have trouble. The other day, we noticed something mould-like on our money tree. I googled and learnt that it wasn’t mould but actually pests called mealybugs!
My husband found out that using alcohol spray can help protect plants from mealybug, so he gave it a try. He also discovered that sulphur can be effective. So,  just to make sure, he used that as well. 
We are hoping our money tree will recover. I really want it to, as I don’t want my children to believe in any curses!
Here is my latest cartoon.
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents daily trivial events from the eyes of mother, with touch of lightness and humour.
