Hey folks, looking for some help on this one. One of my 6 big girls has this going on one of the branches about 4 feet up, and one of the “topped” sites from back months ago.
Below and above look healthy, just localized on this one branch. I was careful and scraped all the white “stuff” off yesterday thinking it was mold, and got down to the woody portion as all the outer green was gone. Not soft at the stem in this spot, which makes me think something chewed off the outer green of the branch and she is trying to heal herself. Kinda sweating at the site and this white stuff forming which has me thinking that. I could, and probably are way off on my theory. I’m not opposed to cutting this branch completely off, but I find this fascinating and just observing a number of times throughout the day to see what’s going on. Plants are in great health so I’m leaning less towards mold or infection, and more towards something happened at that site, and she is trying her best to heal. That’s what I’m hoping for anyways. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
