Hi! So I’ve been collecting desert roses for a little bit now, but definitely still learning how to care for them.
My one plant got spider mites for a while but I learned my lesson and saved it thankfully. But it taught me to be better about checking in on the leaves and having a look around on all my plants.
Well I’ve noticed now on two separate plants these hair follicle like things hanging off the underside of the leaves of two of my plants, anybody know what it might be?

This plant in particular was just growing like crazy and about to bloom about 6-8 flowers but randomly rejected about half of them.

Congratulations. You are an expectant father of lacewings. Those are lacewing eggs.
