Hi All, Purchased a cycad plant from Lowe's garden center today and was checking online as to what to expect, how to care for etc. The sales pitch on the tag labeled it a "Plant of Steel" meaning very low maintenance easy house plant, "Just a cup of water every two weeks is all it needs". I looked up possible pests to be aware of and mostly it talked about scales, tiny legless eyeless critters that look like white powder and eventually can take over and kill a cycad. Well, on closer inspection of the trunk I see this. Tell me the thing didn't come pre-loaded with scales? Or is it supposed to look like this. :/ I've never owned one before. I've searched online and I can't seem to find a closeup photograph of the top of a potted sago palm trunk. Is this powder, or fur? It looks evenly distributed all round the plant, and nothing is on the leaves. If its not scales, what is it? Could it be just a harmless mold, perhaps they've been misting it at the store? :/ ? ? ?
