Hi everyone, this week I happened to spot some white spots on my young luffa sprouts that look like some kind of egg thingy? I'm not sure if this is normal or what but it has started to appear in the other leaves too. My guess is that there's some kind of insect. Someone knows what is this and if it affects the plant? ThankYou!

Probably a thrips insect. They are sucking insects and can severely damage a plant. If you can obtain a spinosad based insecticide in Columbia use that but if you can't spray with Neem, both sides of the leaf.
