    Yeah, I really think so too. My Cephalotus has never got molded or anything like the aforementioned said because it's out in the open in low to lowish-medium humidity.

    This was definitely not scale. Unfortunately I know what scale looks like. And its not the white scale. If you can imagine taking white-out and painting the entire underside of a leaf...that is what it looks like. And it will peel off in a sheet like paint. Its thin, flat and smooth. It's not a bug.

    While my cephs have been partially covered, there was plenty of air circulation underneath and I don't keep my plants wet. They are allowed to dry out some to prevent root rot. I've had them for...over a year? And they've been doing excellently until now.



    Oh and I'd post a pic except that my camera has been broken for months and my cell phone would not be able to capture any detail.

    Maybe the Cephalotus equivalent of toejam, belly button lint or earwax.

    You might try Tom Volk's website PAK, he da man when it comes to fungi...

    http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/

    I believe what you have then would generally be considered a crust or parchment fungus... but that is just an uneducated guess LOL,
    but I would bet that trich would be very aggressive against it

    I was just thinking about trichoderma a little while ago. Might have to check into that. And I'll check the fungus man. lol

    Thank you.

    I've seen that stuff while hiking. It's almost like dried scabs of latex paint. No idea what it is.
