I have an emergency...

I have had this beautiful Tapestry plant for about 7 month. about a month ago I noticed a leaf had what looked like a bug problem so I spayed it down and quarantined it for a week. It did not seem to do any thing so I took it out of quarantined and back to the light.It is getting bad faster by the day and I have not found any answers. I am hoping that some one here knows...about 20 leaves are now affected.Some leaves are not - seems to be the older ones.

It really looks like a virus rather then a bug infestation.

Oh and I am glad to be back since the evolution of the forum...

Thanks EH! I recognize your 36,000 posts and know someone will know here.

There are things we know and things we don't know
and things we know we don't know.
but knowing that there are things we don't know, is the worst...

I will start cutting back the plant - with a heavy heart, but removing the leg, to save the life, may be needed...

Are they hard or soft?? scale can be brown or white/cream colored, hard and soft Looks very simuliar to scale to me,, have you tried removeing them by scraping or use alcohol and q tip to remove?? IF it is scale you can use 1 tsp alcohol , i teaspoon murphy's oil soap to a quart spray bottle ,, BUt I would remove the heavest infected leaves immediatley,,

I have looked at many photos on scale and they all seem to be on the plant not as if a part of the leaf had bubbled up. They are soft and when removed leave a hole in the leaf. They are coming from the inside of the plant leaf. They are not on the under side or on the stems. I might have to put one in a bag and and show it to the local green house I got it from.

you might. but i know when my rubber tree had scale, the young ones did what you are describing. honestly, if you have a university with a botany dept. they could probably help you better than i.

No it does not show on the other side - just the colour removed from leaf.
