My bonsai pipal tree is experiencing some watch dots under its leaves. It has made the leaves pale in color and the tree growth has reduced. Can you please help with me what this is and how to cure it?

That is scale insects. Spray the entire plant every 5-7 days with Neem Oil for 3 weeks. The scale insects on your plant are called hard scale because they are hard, almost like a barnacle. Once you spray them they will be dead but they will not soon fall off of the plant

Thanks Chuck...I washed my plants with light soap water and rinsed them. I'll spray with Neem oil as you mentioned and check the progress.

Neem oil smothers the scale. You can't tell if they are alive or not. Soap doesn't do anything to them. As the plant grows and expands the insects will fall off.
