There is white fur on some outer leaves of my peperomia angulata. Is this normal or should I be worried?

  • does it come off when you rub it? do you see other white fluffy areas on the underside of the leaves? – kevinsky Jun 23 '15 at 19:34
  • I can rub it up and there is a bit fluffy stuff under the leaves too. – el-lugy Jun 23 '15 at 19:38
  • lets get a close up of who or what is under the leaf please – kevinsky Jun 23 '15 at 19:58

    I agree with @kevinsky that no harm can come from taking off that one leaf. Since it's hard to get a picture of the underneath while it's on the plant, feel free to pick it off. Put it upside down on a piece of paper on a table, and you should be able to get a nice, close picture. That's what I do! – Sue Saddest Farewell TGO GL Jun 25 '15 at 3:30

  • no signs of mealybug which looks like white cottony tufts.
  • no signs of a nutrient deficiency such as yellow leaf tissue and green veins
  • there are no dead or necrotic areas that would indicate a virus/fungus/bacteria

I don't see anything to worry about. If you want to be sure remove the leaves that have this.
