I've had my monstera plant for a few years now and just discovered SCALES on its stems. So like any plant mom, I am now scouring the whole plant for any abnormalities that I may have missed. I noticed a few spots on the stems that seem like new growth? maybe aerial roots? But not in the way I've seen it before.

Any thoughts? Just hoping it's not bugs...

No scale insects; just normal plant tissue. Thumbs up
