White seedlike things growing on plants

General    Philippines

Hi! I noticed these white, seedlike shapes first behind one leaf of my flowering plant and now they have spread to the stem. Help!

Hi Lindsay! I believe they are lantana or a similar variety flowering plant.

They look like scale insects. Pick them off ASAP before they spread too far. They'll suck the life out of your plant if their population keeps increasing.

No big deal - don't freak out - just get pickin' n' squishin'!
