    a white fluffy substance is developing around the base of one of my stems in my garden....is it mold or spider mites? i know a picture would help but just try to imagine what white fluffy maybe powdery stuff be... more of a 3d fluff than a 2d powder

    i had this similar substance growing in the top soil, and on the edge of my pots once. it went away after i transplanted into plastic pots.

    Most likely your humidity spiked and it would be just that. Mold. I had it once and scooped it off the surface increased my airflow and no problems since.

    i got that white mold shit too. i just carefully scraped it off all 6 of my plant's grow cubes. to do this i used a knife, and after scrapping each side i would clean the knife with alcohol. i also increased my air flow, so we'll just have to see what happens. i hope leaves stop looking like shit!
