I noticed white dots in my FLF leaves when i zoomed in with my camera. I cant see the dots with my naked eye. Should i be concerned.

Nothing to worry about. Best not to examine your plants under a microscope, magnifier or zoom lens. If you cannot see it with your naked eye, it is not likely to be a problem.

@Msbonniec - Those are normal leaf deformities and imperfections and are not caused by anything ng. Misting does not do anything for your FLF, so you can stop if you would rather not bother.

WillC, you are Johnny on the spot.😉. I so appreciate you. By the way I have a friend who bought me 6 3ft flf. He lives 3.5 hrs away from me. I will be going to pick them up next weekend to deliver to my friends and keep 2 for myself. Any tips on traveling with them. They are currently in his back yard in Michigan. I'm in Indiana. They will be going to 3 different homes in Indiana when I get them.

@Msbonniec - If possible, wrap the plants in paper or plastic sleeves to prevent stems from breaking. More importantly, be aware of temperatures during travel. Vehicles can get very hot inside at this time of year. Good air circulation will help. I also suggest watering thoroughly the day before you pack them up for travel. If you lay them on their sides, tape newspaper over the top of the pots to keep the soil from falling out.

On arrival, your friends will need to keep them in front of sunny windows and keep the soil moderately moist at all times. It is best if they are not repotted.

Good luck!
