lots of my old questions are getting new answers these days... thanks for the suggestion, but those plants are long dead now :( I could take them out by hand using a wet cloth (soap, vineager, i did with everything) but the bugs in the middle of the steams that i had no access to eventually killed them.

hum. it does look more like it than the previously measly bugs... or is this technically a family of them? Anyway, i observed the same spot for weeks. Was never able to see one of them move. or show any member/antennae/whatever. they all just popped into existence... i'm probably a lousy watcher.

@JacekKonieczny i then used too little... in fact, i used undiluted white vinegar. and it did absolutely nothing to the bugs or to the plants. scrubbing with water had the same effect. In the end, I trashed both plants as the infestation in the impossible to reach places always make the whole plant infestation return. was a pointless effort.

comment What are these hard white/brown spots growing on my houseplant?
followup on this. this didn't work for me :( actually nothing that you 'just spray' worked. after losing a few branches to it and testing several other things, the only thing that works is a cloth damped in vinegar and actually scrubbing them off. this will get the pests out of the leaves and trunks. for the hard to reach spots, mostly on the trunk between each leave, use a ear bud also soaked in vinegar, and after each pass, clean it on the cloth and keep moving. tedious work, but saved my two palms.
