    Can anyone identify the insect eggs in my photo? All I want to know is if they're friend or foe.
    They are on the top side of the leaf (yes it's THAT plant) and very small; my quick calculation says there's almost 1,000 here.
    No other signs of insects around.
    I've pulled the leaf off the plant and will keep it in a mason jar with a perforated lid to see what emerges when/if the eggs hatch.

    I wonder if that could be a slime mould.

    Ohhhh I never thought of a mould and assumed it was an insect. Will keep an eye on it, thanks.
