Hi there, I am new to growing and even newer to this forum, with that being said I hope y’all can help me diagnose my issue.
So about a week ago, an auto flower plant (that I topped, idk if it’s linked but the only plant I topped is the only one showing this problem) began showing dropping leaves and just looked overall saggy/tired. Then today I noticed that on 2 elbow joints of the plant was showing these black (thc looking) crystals that severely reduced the rigidity of the cola.
Linked are pictures of the mould? Bug eggs? Plant disease? I don’t know but hopefully one of you knows
