    believe it to be anyway found a few dead bugs in the tent looked them up looked like mealy bugs but a dark body . These two have been unhappy looking since the 2nd week . Been treating with azamax but doesn’t seem to kill whatever it is off . What would you do?

    Healthy plants are unappetizing and sometimes poisonous to bugs.
    I would start by lifting those plants from the saucers so they can drain properly.
    Not fixing the problem with your plants is like swatting flies next to a carcass, it will just attract more flies.

    So just prop it up with a 2x4 or something? I’ve cut back on the water a lot and they still look like that I don’t understand

    Yeah, anything, just don't let them stand on the floor like that. You probably leached out all the magnesium by now, I'd sprinkle a tiny bit of Epsom salts on top, before you water it again.

    as for your bugs try to find a biological pesticide. I use a fungus that gets into the insects and kill them .
