While there is strong evidence for clumping in the winds of massive hot stars, very little is known about clumping in the winds from Central Stars. We have checked [WC]-type CSPN winds for clumping by inspecting the electron-scattering line wings. At least for three stars we found indications for wind inhomogeneities.
