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
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... .
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... .
