I am curious about one thing. I have several African Violets that have small white bugs on top of the leaves. In this thread and other places, usually the bugs are described as being on the underside of the leaves. Would this change the diagnosis of which sort of bug I have? There do not seem to be any on the underside. I also have seen a few tiny flies in the area of my plants but am not sure they are related. Only one plant has any disfiguration and that is on the top, around the point where the stems meet the soil. I own around 10 African Violet plants and I would hate to lose them to this bug, whatever it is.
Thank you for your help!
