Ok, yeah, that was my thought too. Just a bit more info - it is really wooly - and when I pull it apart, very fibrous and cloth like, almost like a pill from a sweater. Very much like that actually! There is nothing moving. Most of what I saw was in the leaf bracts (I think that is the word, you know when some media, in shipping, get's stuck down there? This and some bark pieces were that way. Plant was not packed too well, and bark was everywhere.) Just, found maybe 5 pieces or so on the plant, and a few more in the packing material near the rest of the spilled media. Which I removed from the plant and tore apart. Does NOT seem like some sort of osmocote.
Yikes, ok maybe I should repot even though it is in bloom, huh? It is such a huge and healthy looking plant (pics tomorrow.)
Thanks anyone who has any other ideas!
I would repot it. I have repotted plants in bloom with no ill effect. God for it, get rid of the woolies.
