  • White spots/pods on plants
    Does anyone know what these are? They are on the leaves of my banana plant and peony. And if yes, how can I fix it?? Thanks!

      Paris Lalicata Hi [303086,Callie]! If you look up "white scale" on google it looks like these resemble your uninvited guest, however, it's hard to confirm by the photo provided. If you believe this to be the case though and the infestation is low you can start by spot treating the plant. Using a q-tip/cotton pad dipped in alcohol or neem/horticulture oil will help get them off on contact. Although if they are armored scale they might have a hard time budging and picking them right off is sometimes easier. Afterwards I would then spray the entire plant down with an organic insecticide and monitor it over the next few weeks!

    Does anyone know what this plant is? It was given to me, and I have no idea how to care for it, since I don't know what it is! I am very new to gardening, and want to make sure I get it right!

      jenna Bromeliad! They like bright light and to dry out between waterings. They are technically epiphytes, like orchids, so don’t naturally grow in soil, and have relatively shallow roots. Don’t let them live in soggy soil. Watering once a week or two while letting the water run out should be good enough. One thing to know is that after they flower, the mom plant usually dies, and will channel the energy into producing a pup. So if that happens, don’t panic. :)
