    Pest ID with Microscope

    So I noticed on two of my nepenthes that the growth tips and new leaves seem to have these bubbles on them. A closer look revealed these small white bugs, and I somehow got one under a microscope for an ID. Does this look familiar to any of you? They are extremely tiny. Thanks

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
