Birds Nest indoor plant pest

Asked December 12, 2019, 8:24 AM EST

I noticed small white, soft spots on both sides of frond. Also tips of some fronds were curled with a dark brown hard knot on end. What do I have and how to treat

Thank you for your question. Your description appears to be an infestation of scale insects. But you’ll need to send a photo of the insect and the plant before we can make a positive ID and provide suggestions. Thank you!
