Great plant, came with Scale Insects though

Amazing plant, sadly though, mine came with an infestation of scale insects that I was not able to control and the plant eventually died after a few months. Because of how the spines stick so close to the body of the plant, it was just too hard to get them all out from underneath and they took over.
