I went out this morning looking at my Hawian Lei plants and noticed what looks like very small egg cases on some of the underside of the leaves. Tehey are very small and are bright yellow in color. I touched this and it seemed to be powdering between my fingers I suspect it may be a fungi of some sort. I need some direction in getting rid of it before it harms my plants.

I can't identify the yellow objects for sure but I agree that it sounds like you may be dealing with a fungus or perhaps some type of insect egg masses. Your options are to either take a sample to a local garden center or better yet to your County Extension Office for a positive diagnosis and control recommendation. That way you won't be wasting your time and money on the wrong sprays.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
