Spider Plant With Little Brownish Bumps

Tomatogirl3 added on April 24, 2014 | Answered

My spider plants keep getting these little brownish bumps on the branch that has the babies on it. Are they insects? How do I get rid of them, and what might cause them? I sprayed them with a Ortho insect repellant. I think I've damaged it because the white edges are now beige. Can I cut it down and save it? Thanks.

Brownish bumps that you can scrape off with your fingernail are scale insects. You don't mention sticky residue, but some scales don't make much of it, so you can follow the advice in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/spider-plant/sticky-spider-plant-leaves.htm
