What is this? I saw this stuff on three of my paphs and they’re all close to each other, so I suspect whatever it is to be transmissible.347FFED8-C197-4C64-8456-E4D0226BEB0A.jpeg CD1DB9C0-145E-4DBB-A8AA-20D715CCA317.jpeg EB11FF15-2CEE-41C6-8BCE-47BF2F6EB72D.jpeg

Conditions in my grow space:

Humidity 60s-70s
Temperature 70s F
Top watering every 4-5 days, then fertilize 75ppm K-Lite

More commonly known as “Fly Specks”!
Two of the pics are at the edge of a clipped leaf. I suppose maybe there was some kind of exudate at the wound/clipped leaf?

I had never heard of the term! Learn something new everyday. The wound has been sealed for sometime, but I have some more of these specks on other plants, too
