White spots on a Pygmy Date Palm

White spots on a Pygmy Date Palm
Posted by amy from FL on 2008-10-06 03:38:00

Hi-We just planted a Pygmy Date Palm and noticed some white spots on the leaves and also in the roots. The spots are random on the leaves and do not look like the pictures of mealy bugs(although I am certainly not an expert!) Could it be something else and how can we make sure this palm survives?
Thank You for your help!

    I heard that coffee grounds will discourage the new cycad killing pest.
