Go to a nursery for instructions (they have liquid solutions or sprays). Get some potting soil (the amount you will need.) Take the plant outside and gently remove it from the pot. Lay the root ball on plastic bag, clean out the pot (well away from your plant) with a solution of bleach and warm water and scrub! Follow the directions of what the nursery expert told you. Then spray OUTSIDE the leaves and flowers of your plant. It's advisable that if you have any other plants in the house that you also repeat the same action. DO NOT have children or pets in the area you are working and when you are finished hose down EVERYTHING that the bleach, and any solutions or sprays the expert at the nursery gave you.
