What’s eating my Cotyledon Orbiculata?

It’s not been looking well for a while, poor thing…..

Then I spotted the underside of the leaves were covered in little black things…. to the microscope!

Aphids! Bastards! Well, getting rid of them is relatively easy: blasting it in the shower removes them. I could try some isopropyl alcohol, but I’m worried it’ll harm the plant.

In the end, I’ve been treating them with very dilute washing up liquid (aka Dish Soap) in an old (throughly cleaned) squirty window cleaner bottle.

Look at the little git, waving at me!
