    I’ve found something on my trailing petunia tumbelinas now, they don’t seem to have affected the plant yet, but they’re all over them :frown:
    ID please?

        Thanks, looks like a mite then, though not the spider mite I have in my greenhouse. Think I need to get me some neem oil...

              I suspected the same Pete. Petunia pods ripen very quickly and then burst open and the seed goes everywhere. The mass of fine hairs on the foliage become sticky and the seeds etc are trapped.
