White Spots!? =/

Anyone know what these white spots are from? Could it be from frost/ hail or maybe having rain for so long that when the sun came out the leaves went into shock. help? I don't want my plant to die...

I can't tell from the pics ...can you rub the white off or is it engrained in the leaves. Tara

It doesn't wipe off. It seems to be engraved in the leaves, but it doesn't go all the way through the leaves. Some of the leaves seem to have some rips on them. We did have a hail storm for a few minutes. Maybe it could be leaf damage. The last photo are succulents that I have in the front yard. They have the exact same white dots with some riped leaves also. So I am now kind of thinking it's the hail damage. hmmm....


thanks for your help...=)

If these are outside and they were in a hail storm...yep...it was the hail that caused the damage. No worries...they'll be fine.

Looks like hail damage to me too. We have very bad hail storms here in Colorado every year. I have similar damage to few of my Zygo cactus plants that usually stay outside after the Winter is gone.
