    So i have a bagseed plant growing in soil under some CFL lights. the plant itself looks completely healthy, despite a bit of stretching. but there is this strange growth happening at the very bottom of the stem. it looks like these tiny little white spikes sticking out of the stem. they point a bit downwards and theyre smaller than 1mm.

    i would post a picture but the only camera i have is my cellphone and it cant take clear pictures with small details...

    anyone heard or seen anything like this before?

    im sure it is noting man. really i wouldnt worry. 1mm white spike, it could be the dead skin around the stalk that always peels off.

    i dont think thats it since arent those suppose to grow out of the nodes? this is growing out basically at soil level...

    arent those just roots that could have grown if transplanted deeper at least thats what i was told by another grower

    I have this same thing on my ladies, I was going to start a topic but glad to see you beat me to it...now if only someone knows what it is. I was thinking maybe its where the roots thought they would start trying to grow from there and decided not to and hardened up, but im not sure some input would be awesome.
