Have you seen this stem issue?
I'm new to the forum, but have been growing hot peppers around 12 years or so. This year I have a strange issue with a stem condition I can't identify (see photo), and was hoping someone here could ID it with certainty. I'm seeing this on the stems of about 25% of my plants (started in early February, and still living indoors). I've hunted around for photos of stem conditions, but so far haven't found something exactly like it. Any help would be appreciated!
