My nepenthes ventrata has a bit of spider mites. Can I use diluted isopropyl alcohol on it? It works on many of my houseplants. Should I just get Bioadvanced 3in1? And how would I apply it?

I haven't used alcohol, but I wouldn't. Can't say it wouldn't work though. I use Bio 3in1 and haven't had any issues.

Spray the plant down, but try not to get it in any of the pitchers. I usually treat every plant growing in the same area at the same time.
