    Default Pic of bumps on leaf

    This is a picture of some odd looking bumps that are on my plant. It is a phal if matters. I have been watching them and they seem to be getting worse but I have not been watching them that closely to be for certain.

    I have been treating this plant for mealies as well.

    very strange looking. Ive seen something similar on one of my mom's phals except they were green bumps. I don't know what they are.

    Could be scars from inscets ? I would coat what ever they are with a fungacide , Daconal works well , It is thick I just paint it on . can get it at a couple of the big box stores . ( Thanks to Bd. for telling me about it ) Gin

    If they're not really spreading, I wouldn't worry. Some of mine have similar little bumps. The things to watch for are plant reaction, bump spread, and other opportunist diseases or pests.

    That would indicate a problem. The bumps as they now exist may be ok. Spray to be sure, as Gin suggests. A fungicide and insect spray are both good ideas. Then watch carefully for items above.

    Keep us posted!

    I got those on all of my phals and some catts after I sprayed neem oil. There are saps running out of these bumps.

    i have been told, that kind of bump, on a phal, can be from too much fertilizer.
    that may be the cause, but they still need taken care as Gin and Julie suggest
