Anyone have ants on there leaves? Seems like they are making little bumps or something. Also the next issue is light spotting on the leaves. Looks different then FMV. Maybe lack of Nitrogen? Thanks

Brian, 1st pic is scale. Ants transport them and feed on the scales secretions.

Pix 1 = scale. you can rub them off, blast them with water, or use a horticultural oil to smother them. Control ants and they will not be an issue.

Pix 2 = FMV if the leaves are undamaged, and stress (probably insufficient water) is they are small dead areas in the leaf.
