Since I'm new to caring for CP, I would like to be half way prepared if something pops up.
I know Aphids are one of the pests that infect CP.
So my question is: What pests do CP have? And what's the recommended treatment for said pests?

I like to douse the infected area of the aphids with lots and lots of water to get them off the stems, after, I flood the pot to rinse out the aphids into the drain. This works for me really well but it may not work for growers using peat moss, if using peat moss, be a little more gentle with the water.

I've got those little green sh*ts. I've gotta go flood my pot to rinse them away. For good measure, neem. I'm going to get some lady bugs.
