White bugs? on Dracaena Marginata
Perhaps someone more experienced with plants will be able to assist me!
I have had a Dracaena Marginata for around 7 months now an it has been doing fine but has started to drop leaves and I suspect it may be down to an infestation of some sort.
There are what appear to be white bugs on the leaves and on the stems where the leaves join. When the leaves fall off there are quite a few on the base of the fallen leave. The leaves turn yellow and then dry out. There also appears to be brown patches on te leaves where the white bugs have been.
I have looked at pictures of spider mites and mealey bugs, but these do not seem to match and they are really small. There do not move at a speed that I can detect and always seem to be in the same spot. I have looked under a small pocket microscope and there kind of look like a grain of rice or a cotton q tip. I can't see any legs or any other "buggy" features.
I would be grateful to anyone to anyone taking the time to read this and offer any help!
I have tried to embed some images that I hope will work and will help identification.
