My pot of chili plant is leafy, no insect.
Could the white flies be attracted by some other plants?
My chilli plants always attract a lot of white flies. Tedious way is to give the leaves a 'sponge bath'. Gotta do it pretty frequently.
I do spray neem oil on the leaves as well but I keep them in the shade when on the day that I spray or else the leaves get burnt if they remain under the sun with the oil on the leaves.
The pomegranate beside it didn't get any pest, not even white flies. When I replanted, I isolated the plant but still got it
I did the sponge bath but boy! It's so tedious! I sprayed pesticide and let the plants in the sun maybe that's why the leaves turned brown. Next time I'll try spraying at night and see if it works.
Speaking of chilli and tomato plants, mine flowered but no fruits and got very leggy...why ah....
