There are little red mites on my Stylidium debile and they are eating the leaves. I know they are mites because I can see them on the damaged areas of the leaves. I have never seen this before on any of my plants. Does anyone know if there is some way to get rid of them without harming the plant?

Neem oil has always worked for me on my CPs. If that fails, submerge the plant in water for a day or two (or three!). Being drowned won’t bother it one bit. That plant happily grows in semi-aquatic conditions for me in its warm, arid indoor environment. It is the most forgiving CP I know of.
