2022.01.25 11:18 ThumbGardening Pests on Aglaonema Plant: How to Identify and Control With Them

Many people consider Aglaonema's "Lady's Bliss" an almost infallible plant. It is one of the most reliable and undemanding candidates for indoor gardening. Aglaonema is suitable for any style or function and size of a room. It has problems only with serious lapses in care. Many things are easily forgiven with this attractive plant. However, if a serious mistake is made, Aglaonema can suffer from impaired development, decay, and insect damage. They are rare, but it is not easy to deal with insects that specifically target Aglaonema. You will learn how to grow Aglaonema's plants in ThumbGarden's article.
SPECIFIC CARE FOR AGLAONEMA PLANTS
The white veil surrounding the modest inflorescence - the fruiting spike - and the large, dark, slightly wavy leaves in a rosette form, rich in color and able to bloom in shady places, are the unconditional advantages of stemless Aglaonema. They do not require the same nature.
To avoid problems with your plants, you need to follow the basic care instructions. - Place the plant in a place that avoids direct sunlight, light, semi-shade, or irregular shade.

But nothing affects stability and beauty more than basic hygiene. Neglected Aglaonemas, whose leaves have been covered with dust, quickly lose their appeal. And, even under seemingly ideal conditions, they are easy targets for pests.
PESTS CAN BE VERY HARMFUL TO AGLAONEMA
Aglaonema usually signals difficulties and discomfort on its own. When problems occur, insect infestation is the first thing to suspect. Suppose chorizo is growing poorly, looking sluggish, losing color, showing spots, or showing other signs of growth problems. In that case, the first thing to check when looking for possible causes is the possibility of insect infestation in and out of the soil. Since delays can be fatal to the crop, it is best to exclude the pest from the list of possible causes simply.
Aglaonema forms a dense colony and a lush bush in which it is not easy to reach all the leaves for proper treatment and cleaning. If pests appear on this plant, they can easily hide on a large number of leaves and soil surface, spreading rapidly and threatening the loss of decorative properties of most leaves. Aglaonema takes a long and reluctant time to heal after an infestation, requiring patience and careful care. Therefore, reacting quickly at the first sign of a pest is the key to successful pest control on this plant.
If the first signs of insects are detected, you should immediately begin treatment with insecticides or biological agents that can replace them. On Aglaonema, simple methods, such as leaf washing or wiping, are rarely effective because of the large surface area of the leaves. They are only the first step in defeating pests.
The most common pests of home pots - whiteflies, aphids, spider mites, and Mealybug - are mainly found on Aglaonema. But nematodes are also very dangerous: if they are found in the substrate, the plant needs to be replanted immediately.
Aphids on Aglaonema

Aphids can form entire colonies on the large leaves of Aglaonema. Most of the time, the insects hide in the inconspicuous leaves in the center of the shrub. When examining Aglaonema, you need to pay special attention to the young leaves because it is on these leaves that the insects spread at an alarming rate.
You can usually only suspect an aphid infestation by looking at the changes in the leaves. The young leaves are the first to react, changing color and contrasting unpleasantly with the older leaves. If the first signs are missed, more and more leaves will lose their color, curl and fall off. The sooty fungus, a traditional partner of aphids, feeds on its secretions and appears rather quickly on salivating insects.
If aphids are noticed initially, and the leaves are not too badly affected, you can try using folk remedies such as soaking in onion husks or marigolds. However, the risks of delay outweigh the benefits of ecological remedies.
Delaying on Aglaonemas is not recommended, so it is best to purchase an insecticide and prepare the solution for spraying according to the instructions. All sides of the leaves must be sprayed thoroughly. One spray is not enough: Aglaonema will need repeated 3 to 5 times if aphids infest.
Red spider mites

If a plant suffers from high temperatures, extremely dry air, and occasional drought, it is almost impossible to protect it from spider mites. Spider mites spread rapidly on the leaves, manifesting themselves not only as distinct translucent micro-patterns but also as irregular yellowing starts and strange drying that does not begin at the leaf tips. In general, spicebush is not without growth disturbance.
It is best to remove diseased leaves on Aglaonema immediately, as the dryness does not regenerate and only increases the risk of further spider mite spread. To quickly solve the problem, it is best to start treating plants with insecticides straight away while adjusting conditions and care. Increase watering and spraying, and lower the temperature by regular ventilation. It is best to install a wet pebble tray for Aglaonema if possible.
Folk alternative for early infestation - onion and citrus infusion - 0.26 gal per (1 liter) of water 100 g peel or 20-25 g peel, stick to 3 days, strain through a small amount of soap, and use.
The mysterious Mealybug

It is not easy to spot the Mealybug on Aglaonemas because these insects hide between the leaves in places almost impossible to see under normal circumstances. Growth arrest, mildew (especially at the base of the leaves), white spots, dullness, and loss of luster can also indicate the presence of this pest.
Mealybug can be removed by hand, especially if there are few pests: ordinary alcohol can easily do the job. However, it is safer to use insecticides or citrus peel infusions for control and prevention.
Less common on Aglaonema is the Mealybug, which can be detected visually by sticky patches and by the weakened state of the plant. More often than not, they sit on the petiole. Only when spreading, can these insects be seen with the naked eye on the leaf flakes. The best way to treat them is a combination of manual insect removal and insecticide treatment by wiping the leaves with soapy water.
ISOLATION IS IMPORTANT
Of course, the plant must be isolated from other houseplants before specific control methods can be applied. And disinfect the plant by washing it in a warm shower and treating the foliage with plain soapy water. If there are so many insects that the nests are visible, you can try gently removing them with cotton wool or a cloth dipped in diluted alcohol (if the concentration is high, it will leave a burning mark on the leaves of the acanthus).
Dear readers To avoid pest problems, all you need to do is give it at least some basic care and keep its leaves clean. So in the case of Aglaonema, prevention is the best control strategy.

2022.01.25 11:18 conestogan Long read post as follow up to simplify and smartphones

Published in our monthly meeting’s December newsletter.
“Why One Friend Left Facebook”
Last Monday, just before I went to bed, my computer let me know that my Facebook history file was ready to download. The file contained every post I made, every “like” I tapped, every photo I posted…etc. It summarized my life in the 13-year period starting in 2008, when I joined, through the first week of December of 2021, when I announced I was leaving Facebook. After the download ended, I deleted my Facebook account.
What prompted me to end my relationship with an online community of about 600 “friends” ranging from intimate connections and family members to people from work, other organizations, and other countries? Why cut myself off with only a week’s notice to others?
The answer is simple. I believe - strongly - that Facebook and Instagram have done more to harm our common good than it has to bring us together. Yes, it does encourage community, as we’ve seen with our LVMM Friends (note: this is Lehigh Valley Monthly Meeting’s Facebook presence) group and with pages and groups you’ve joined. It lets us see pictures of our children, grandchildren, and dear ones. We can send birthday and anniversary greetings with a few keystrokes or a simple click. When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing.
While we’re clicking and wishing away, the engines of Facebook are busily chugging away at learning more and more about us, our habits, and our interests. The ads that pop up on your Facebook feed are a direct reflection of your interests, and they are not private. You are Facebook’s product, not its customer. You have a password to protect your account from others, but no right to privacy from Facebook’s true customers.
Some of Facebook’s customers you recognize. They are the organizations that pay for ads you see. I know how that works because I’ve paid for Facebook ads on our behalf for LVMM events. For just a few dollars, I was able to target households in our area with a specific age range to let them know about public events at the meetinghouse. Because few people use local newspapers or radio stations for event information, Facebook is the common denominator for publicity.
Other Facebook customers are darker and more frightening. Their identities are cloaked behind corporate veils or international borders. One of Facebook’s former senior executives, a specialist in data science, described how the corporation’s platforms drove people to darker and darker places. She specifically noted its damaging effects on the self-image of young women.
I was a pretty early adopter, signing up almost 15 years ago. I had a lot of fun with Facebook at first. Over the years, however, as it became more popular and then culturally ubiquitous, political opinions began to appear. During the presidential election campaigns of 2004 and 2008, many people found voices they may not have been aware they had and used them to speak their truth.
We’ve all had a pretty good sense about how speaking one’s truth online feels versus speaking one’s truth face-to-face. The article you’re reading isn’t my first draft! I’ve taken time to measure my words and think about how to offer my truth so you will understand what I’m writing, even if you don’t agree with it (if you’ve read this far). Likewise in person: if we’re talking about something important, we’re pretty good about pausing and taking turns, watching the other person’s reactions, and seeking common ground. An online post reacting to something that just happened is immediate and visceral. “How could they…?” “Why did they…?” “We should…” There is no deliberation. I strike out; you, with a different opinion, take it personally and strike back. Facebook is the modern home of an-eye-for-an-eye.
Read the beautiful founding principle of Facebook in Mark Zuckerberg’s own words: “[to] give people voice and bring people together”. The practice of Facebook, operating as a larger-than-national entity writing its own rules and regulating itself, is the very opposite of what I consider our testimonies of community and peace to be. Good controversy brings communication; communication leads to mutual respect and tolerance of differences of opinion. Facebook grows through controversy, because controversy keeps us scrolling, and when we scroll, we see ads. Facebook profits from our righteous indignation, not from our “likes” and comments. It lights the match, fuels the fire, then does nothing to extinguish it except to suggest we keep scrolling to find others who have buckets.
My path to the Beloved Community cannot pass through Facebook in the form it takes today. I’m not certain that any path that does not allow direct interpersonal communication or a period of deliberation between writing and publishing can get me there. I’ve already felt my thumb reach for the missing Facebook icon on my phone, and I expect it will continue to twitch for a month or two. I’m going to miss the community I’ve helped create. It’s changed. I’ve changed. I’m still here.

2022.01.25 11:18 Calico46 I picked the wrong course. Can I pivot?

I’m in my third year doing a law degree and I came to the slow realisation that it is really not a career path for me. I’ve become increasingly more interested in tech/programming and I’d much rather pursue that in the future.
Would do you advise I do? I’m planning on finishing out my undergrad degree as I’m pretty close to the end and it would feel like a waste not to. But after that I’m not sure what to do. I don’t think I could do a post grad degree in an unrelated field without a base of knowledge. I also don’t know if doing another undergrad degree is the best use of time as it would take a long time. Should I just try and teach myself things online and go from there?
I’m willing to work as hard as possible I’m just feeling a bit lost and I would really appreciate some guidance. Thank you in advance!

Too many people from my old job are looking at my LinkedIn profile and its starting to bother me… The only reason I am bothered is because they know I’m open to work and they just look at my profile to be sneaky.. they don’t even bother to connect with me. Now I’m okay if recruiters look at my profile but not old co workers. They should be able to connect with me in order to see my profile.
