: Hi..most of the mealy bugs I have encountered have been on my buds, blooms, or under leaves. I have found it easy to dip a q-tip in an insecticidal plant soap and touch the bugs individually. The bug sticks to the q-tip for easy clean up. Then I spray the base of the plant and roots with the soap aswell. I am unsure if it's safe to dip your whole plant, but i'd advise you not to especially if you have buds/blooms. Hope this helps somewhat.
