Scale is one of several pests that may go after your plants in an attempt to cure their munchies. You can typically identify them easily enough by searching for clusters of scale-like creatures on the leaves or stems of your plant. If one of your plants seems sickly even though you’ve cared for it regularly, you may want to check it for these tiny creatures.

Once you have dealt with scale, it is a good idea to frequently check other houseplants until you know that the danger is gone. Understanding the symptoms and what to look for will also help you identify the problem faster in the future so that they can be dealt with more quickly.
