c. Mealy Bug
This pest infestation of white flour and have encountered similar to the armpit and leaflet. The attacks led to the growth of abnormal shoots.

Overcomee: spraying insecticides, such as Proleaf to the plant is attacked.

d. Nematode
Nematodes commonly found in the planting medium given manure. The initial symptoms are yellowing of leaves and the death of his buds are still young. Part of being attacked is the root nematode adenium. If the sick adenium removed from the pot will look like tubers at the root fibers. In addition, the root fibers end many roots die and the base of wrinkled or holes. When viewed with a microscope would look a lot smaller worm gnawing at the roots adenium.

Damage to crops caused by the secretion of saliva that is injected into the plant during nematode bite or eat the plant. This process can lead to death because the power lost roots and shoots, wounds formed, the plant tissue to swell and burst.
