I don't know. I doubt it because they just appeared. They weren't there when I got the plant. Do lutea show veins later after the plants develop more? Also they are not in a normal vein pattern. They are kind of sporatic and face in every direction. They are also increaing in amount day by day. Anyone know what this is. Wierd infestation maybe?
I don't know what leaf borers are and what to do about either problem if that is the problem. The lines are about a cm. long adn are only on the tops of the leaves, but you can see them through the bottom. Does that help at all? Any one please?!
I have seen little, well actually, quite long worms on the inside of the plastic cup on top and in the water near the drianage hole, but they are really long compared to the black lines, probably 3cm. long and they have black heads and are yellowish cream in color. Also, I haven't seen any that are alive on the leaves and I would think taht worms this long you would see chowin'. Maybe they eat only early in the morning or something? What can I do if it is worm borers. What do I do if it's a fungus?
Just an update on my little ping. The guys at the California Carnivores didn't know what it was, but my ping seems to be doing really great now. It is no longer spreading and the new leaves do not seem to be getting any yet. So I guess it will always be a mystery but I don't care as long as my plant is happy. Thank you all. Shauntell
