I'm having some trouble with my big schefflera, my rubber tree and my dwarf schefflera. I can't tell if it's scale, or some other pest, or an infection.

I've attached a bit of a picture book hopefully showing what's going on.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

They all look healthy to me. I think the "bumps" are just part of the maturing process .

I agree its just aging of the stem.

I also agree, looks like normal aging.

I concur. Step back from your plants and enjoy how healthy they are and good they look.

Thanks guys! I get a little paranoid because I lost about 10 of my larger plants a few years ago to something unidentified and bumpy.
