One of my pawpaws, about an inch in diameter, has this mysterious substance coming out of the ground and attaching to the trunk.
I keep removing it and it comes back. It’s gooey and kinda grey, but as you can see it’s kinda coated in dirt. Honestly it seems like a moist spider web.
I pulled all of it off/out the other day and there is a perfectly round hole in the ground about half an inch across.
I filled the hole with dirt and now it’s back!
I haven’t googled yet - thought I’d start here
Also - anyone else having issues with the site rotating pictures?!? Grrr
