Scale `w`when mature, attack stems in a cluster `s`small white gray lumps - oval shape `p`plant turns yellow, loses vigor
`s`sticky sap appearance on plant `r`remove with soapy water `s`spray with Malathion or Orthane
Botrytis `c`common disease `l`leaves turn black and develop a gray mold and will eventually rot off
`p`provide good air circulation `u`use a fungicide - Benlate
