I have got a bunch of flowers, and under the leaves I noticed that there are a lot of spots. I do not know what type of leaves they are and I am not sure if the spots are eggs. Should I be worried about them?

The leaves in the picture looks like ferns. As you may know, ferns use spores to reproduce. It appears to me that it is just the Sori under your leaves (the Sori is made up of groups of Sporangium, which produce and contain the spores). Nothing to be worry about! You can even try to grow more from these.

  • I agree these definitely look like fern spores to me too
