It looks like some insects laid egg underneath the leaves on my indoor plant. How best to remove and protect the plant.

Expert Response

Your plant has a fairly significant infestation of whiteflies.  You should purchase an insecticidal soap or horticultural oil that is labeled for indoor use.  If you use such a product, you should take the plant outside on a mild day when you spray it.
