When I went to water my crape myrtle tonight, I found hard, little white egg type things on the tips of the new leaves. Any idea what this could be? I did notice an aphid running along one of the leaves. Here's some pics
CLOSED: Bug "eggs" on Crape Myrtle??
When looking for the answer to what these 'white things' are, this thread came up and now I'm a member of Dave's garden. I found these same things on my crepe myrtle yesterday and I've seen them on my indoor ficus, too. My ficus has 'had' these for a few months, but still looks healthy. Has anyone given the answer? I'm new to this site, so maybe I just can't find it... .
Welcome, notherkathy. I don't see the answer here, either. Maybe the original poster will come back and tell us what they found out?
For those who might be interested---I found the answer!!! It is gutation that has dried...a normal, natural thing. Rather than try and tell you what gutation is here---you'll probably be happier going on line and simply typing in 'gutation'. Now we know... .
