My African violet plant has little brown spots on the leaves and stem. The spots are not part of the plant, I can pick them off and it leaves a little spot of white powder. On one plant the leaves are dying, and it has spread to a violet in a nearby pot. Does anybody know what this is and how to treat it?
Never seen them on an African violet before.
There's some info I found here, don't know how reliable it is though.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I have read online that they can be killed by carefully dabbing methylated spirit onto the insects with a cotton bud, but have never tried it.
I had them on an outdoor acer and removed them by hand.
Thank you all for the help. I have 4 violets, so I am happy that I know what to do.
