I see a kitty cat in the background: could your cat have tried to take bites off of some of your plants? And are those spiderweb-like stuff on the elephant bush? Btw sedum, most aloes, and senecios (like the banana) are supposed to be toxic to cats. So you may want to watch out or put the pot away from the reach of the kitty. My cat and the plants are completely segregated. Not only because of toxicity, but because he loves plants so much he turns into Elmyra with them 😁

Thank you for the heads-up about toxicity. Thankfully she doesn't seem to have any interest in these plants, but I'll likely move them anyway, just to be safe. I did check the string of bananas for any signs of mumbles and see nothing. These are new chutes/strings, so maybe it's normal for there to be only few tiny bananas at first. I'm not sure. This is the first time I've had a string plant. Thanks again for the info!

Oh, also, I think the peely and scaly stuff might be dried liquid fertilizer. I put some in the basket a week or so ago. Perhaps it splashed and dried on some petals.

Oh, that makes sense. The drops must have burned and caused that peeling.
