I keep my cast iron indoors. I've had a (mite?) issue with the cast iron since day 1 of it being potted. I have had it since 2019 and am not sure how to get rid of the issue altogether.
So far, I use alcohol to remove the existing (mites?) and then use insecticidal soap 1x a week to keep whatever it is at bay. But, I really want to just get to the root of the issue.
I plan on repotting the cast iron to a larger pot in spring
but I want to make sure I understand what the issue I have been having is, whether it is fungus mites, spider mites, or whatever it is.

2nd question: My cast iron flowered.
Do I remove the flower
? Again, I only keep it indoors and am not sure what to do with the bud as I've had it since 2020.
