Since a few photos seem to be slipping through, I'l like to show this one of a spined Zantedeschia.
It's the second year in a row the tuber has put up leaves like this.

That is extremely odd. Is the foliage and flowers normal??

Dear Susan.

If this plant was in water or a marsh you do not have a big
problem. It is an insect who put their eggs in plants. I have met this animal in
Hungary, but here the eggs have got a brown coloration. It is called Nepa
cinerea, but Ranata linearis has got bigger eggs, and it puts it
in the plants like this. These are not pests! They are predator insects, who eat
water insects or small fishes. You may try to pull out some eggs, to see if I'm
right...

Dear Jani,That's amazing! I wish I had looked closer. It's odd that it was only in the 1 variety out of almost 100, and two years in a row.The plant was in a very sandy soil in a farmer's field. It didn't get much water at all.-

Than I do not know are they eggs, but i think. If it not harms
the inflorescence and the plant I think you may leave it alone...

IT's strange. Nepa rybra is a small "insect" (i
don't know to name it Crustaceae) which lives in wet places , like
ponds.

I googled a photo of Nepa. That is a very ugly insect!abri1973@wp.pl wrote: IT's strange. Nepa rybra is a small "insect" (i don't know to name it Crustaceae) which lives in wet places , like ponds. Marek
