Pest control

I have not had many problems with Huperzia except this white scale. This pest takes it home under the tips of the Huperzia and eventually will kill the plant. White scale does not grow as fast of brown scale but it is not as easy to kill. I use Eight (permethrin) by soaking the ferns in bucket solution every 8 days for 2-3 treatments. If you are able to look threw a lens you can tell if the problem is taken care of or not. The white spots do not go away that is the housing for the scale insect. But in a month you will see new growth. Not dealing with this pest will lead to wide spread infestation.
Huperzia is a huge fern allie family that are found threw out the old world and new world. There are so many species and I have had a hard time getting species names so If you read Spp that is just a species that I do not know what the name is. If you see one that you may know what the name is contact me I'd like to know.

Growing huperzia is not difficult and I have them in windows in my house and in business. Most like bright light and to dry out a little before watering. Most can take temperatures down in the 50's at short periods of time. Contact me if you are interested in starting your Huperzia collection.
Recently Ashley R. Field and Peter D. Bostock reclassified the family Huperzia to Phlegmariurus.
