I never knew you could get aphids on indoor plants, but I've discovered I have a major infestation on my Oxalis and on the plants in my daughter's "fairy garden" basket.  I guess one infested the other - they are right next to each other in the kitchen window.  Is there anything I can do about it?  I don't so much care about the Oxalis as I do the fairy garden that we did at my daughter's 3rd birthday party.  They were both growing so beautifully and then in the last week or so I noticed they weren't doing so hot, and today I happened to notice the aphids.  :(  Any help would be appreciated.

I would mix together Dr. Bronners and vegetable or canola oil in a spray bottle and douse the plant. smile.gif Smothers em' up real good.
