In selecting plants for a window-garden or house conservatory, those plants should be omitted that are much subject to the attacks of aphis and mealy-bug. Amongst the common plants which are much infested are coleus, German ivy (Senecio scandens), calla, Vinca variegata, Cyperus alternifolius, fuchsia, cineraria, and carnation. Those that are nearly exempt are most kinds of geraniums, begonias, wandering Jew, and most ferns. Palms are very liable to scale infestation. (For insects, see p. 301.)
