Are we sure this isn’t just root cells popping out around the base bc of humidity around plant base? I have seen several cultivars do this in the past, especially when hand watering with a wand. Are these bumps anywhere else on the plant?

see i thought that also at first. But around the leaf area its intersting shapped. And the sweet smell. I have actually tested plants by laying them on soil and watching them root. Through the side of the stem. So thats my thought also. I wish i had a cut to play with. Its got me interested. And if there root nodes no need to chop them off. I wonder if cutting them off the stem stresses them more like the guys into stem splitting to make more tichromes. This is all very interesting!

I get them all the time and never have an issue…

is that splitting or super stressing 3 days prior to harvest legit?

@preybird1 I wish I could show you guys more. The wax scale turned brown yesterday and I also captured a few critters with my 60x microscope and video recorded off my phone.

The plants I might add as well have this horrible discolouration. It’s early flower , week 3, and the Top fan leaves are curling inwards with HEAVY browning.

They will be ok. Light feeding, ph’d water. They might be in a bit of shock due to the animals and the scraping.

Looks a little tired but normal from being messed with. Some water and they are good to go.
