Spots on Stem

Anonymous added on January 31, 2012 | Answered

I have two well developed spider plants that have spots on the stems and show signs of wilting, but no spots or holes on the leaves. The spots are small, oval shaped, and beige/brownish along stem by base of the plant. Any help, please. I don't want to lose these plants.

It sounds like it could be scale. I would treat the plant with neem oil. This article will help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
