Hello everyone! I have a Schefflera actinophylla that’s been struggling lately lol. I’ve been searching through plant forums but since dwarf umbrellas are more popular it’s harder to find an answer, so I thought I would turn back to this forum for some help. I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything lol. It started dropping leaves when I forgot to water it....oops. Ever since then it’s just (like I said above) been struggling. I’ve had it for 2 years now, and it’s not in an enclosure. It has had mites since I got it, and I’ve been treating it with neem oil spray. I think what happened was I let it dry out and the mites attacked while it was vulnerable, idk. The leaves were dropping and I fixed that, but now the base of the stalks are starting to turn black. The last image is a pic of one of the mites. I was informed previously on this forum that it was a type of spider mite.
