    I just noticed some really small red bugs on my plant. It is also getting new really thin verticle lines of purple in the stem...what is going on? How do i get rid of these things?? Thanks

    looking at it more the soil is covered with these little guys. Can i get rid of them or should i just toss the plant? thats sad. where the **** did they come from?

    ok so looks like red spider mites, i re-potted the plant and got rid of all the visible ones, i guess if the plant lives i'll see if that helped..

    Do they look like the picture in here?

    If so, they're mites. I've never dealt with them myself, but you have a variety of weapons.. err.. strategies to deal with them.
