hi everyone. i have a big plant (i don't know what kind). and it's dying. today i looked in the soil and there are these little grey things that look like pebbles. but they're not pebbles because i popped one, and it was full of puss. i'm guessing this is what's killing my plant.
anyhow, it's making me sad because i like this plant a lot.
I agree with capt_insano... looks like a draceana to me. That is definately fertilizer. I remember when I first saw them thinking it was bug eggs and spending a LOT of time picking them out before taking the plant back to the plant center where I had purchased it... it took a while for the guy to catch his breath from laughing at me before he could explain what those little round things were...
As far as the rotting out goes, when I kept houseplants I had them to that too. What worked for me was to take the healthy part out and repot in new potting soil. There may be some kind of pathogen going in the wet soil.
