Is this scale on my gardenia?
I have a question about my gardenia plant. The plant itself looks very healthy and has been filling in nicely lately. I have had some problems with spider mites, but have washed the plant as soon as I see their webs. What I am seeing now is small white patches on the stems, nothing on the leaves. Could it be scale or is it just the stem becoming woody? It looks like "plant dandruff" and seems to be able to be rubbed off, but appears again later.
P.S. How do I attach pictures to show this? Not very computer savy.
