Majesty Palm - Mealy Bugs or Spider Mites?
I bought a majesty palm at Ikea a few months ago without knowing anything about the plant. After doing some research I realized they're not ideal indoor plants but I've been determined to make it work. I carry it into the bathroom and soak it thoroughly to water. I mist it a couple of times a day. It's not getting direct sunlight but it's in a big, bright window.
It seemed to be doing well but when I gave it its shower today I noticed some white spots on the back of the leaves, pictured. Besides those spots there is some minor, minute browning at the ends of some of the fronds but otherwise the palm appears to be doing well. I thought the browning might be due to too much fertilizer (9-3-6 Foliage Pro) so I stopped fertilizing. But these white spots are making me nervous. Any suggestions?
