Hello, well after finding out i had a pest on my nepenthes in a trade felt i should take some action and ask the forum if anyone could identify the pest and how i can treat it.
the nepenthes was inside a propagation tank along with tons of cuttings that were rooting, and tons of germinating dews. this is one cutting that i believed shows what might have been on the plant i sent. to me i thought the leaves were discoloring because they were rooting cutting. the plants are under at least 85% humidity, with 2 24 or 26 compact florescent lights that hit them for about 10-15hrs a day, the leaves might also have some speks of dirt on them.
I also noticed something new on one of my newly received nepenthes, this i dont think would have been the one that traveled along with the other plant because i received these after the trade.
can any help? is the 2nd one scale? its only effecting one leaf shsould i clip it off before it spreads? the plant is being isolated. the first one i have no idea. Personally all i have delt with is squirrels, chipmunks, aphids and a little bit of scale that i was told might not even be scale.
