    How do you get rid of cobwebs in your rose house plant?

    My husband bought me a mini rose plant for Valentine's Day and I've recently noticed cobwebs linking the leaves and roses together.  I trimmed the rose a la Morticia Adams and it seemed to help..for a week.  The cobwebs are back.  I haven't spotted any spiders.  Any suggestions?

    Cobwebs on roses could mean aphids. There are so small, you don't always see them. There are other pests you can goodle, too. You could try washing the plant with a mix of warm water and a bit of castile soap and tea tree essential oil. That worked for one of my plants. Not too much soap, or it can kill the plant!
