Spider Plant Has Raised Brown Bumps On Leaves

Question From: N. Magee - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, United States
Q: Hello Nancy I have a question about a spider plant. It has raised Brown bumps on the leaves. I can wipe them off fairly easy. What is it? Best Nora

A: Your spider plant has scale Nora. Look under leaves and on stems, It's hard to get rid of and I have friends who will toss a plant that is badly infected. Here is a link to Cornell that should be helpful. http://idl.entomology.cornell.edu/files/2013/11/Scales-on-Houseplants-ombss3.pdf Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
