Infestation of White Tiny Attachments to Top Side of Dieffenbachia
My Dieffenbachia suddenly is covered with very tiny white things that are attached to the top side of the leaf. They stick straight out from the plant. They do not move. Also, perfectly healthy leaves are dropping right off. Never had this problem before. PLEASE help.
