    The bigger pictures aren't very clear. I think they look like new-hatched snails.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Thrips have wings. Whatever they are, spray with some Bayer 3-in-1. It'll repel the fungus that grows on damaged tissue and it'll kill whatever those things are.

    Make sure you spray out in the open though, you get kinda light headed if you spray indoors in an enclosed environment.

    ALWAYS quarantine your new plants!
    Even when they look good, it is always wise to quarantine them when you first get them.
    Also, it is not how BIG a picture is that counts, it is how clear and focused it is!

    I am sure your bug can be identified, if you can provide better pictures.

    For now, quarantine and spray with what has already been recommended on TF (run a search on bug/fungus sprays/insecticides, etc. to get TONS of info on what to use.)

    Good luck.

    If you purchased these, please PM me to let me know who to be careful of!
    NOT a good sign from a vendor!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    Looks like the pitcher just threw up it contents. I don't think it is a pest.
