I am having a touch-me-not plant in my small garden, which is located in on the 2nd floor in my apartment. I had brought it from a local plant shop. For the first few months it was perfectly healthy (3 months precisely)
. I mean it is still healthy but for the last 1 month some kind of white flossy thing started to appear on barks of the plant. and it is continuously growing and i cannot understand what it is or whether its natural in the circumstances or not. I will be extremely glad if you could enlighten me with what is going on with my plant. I am enclosing a picture of the plant with that white flossy thing.

Can you tell us where you are located?

It may be moss.

Your white moss might be similar to our Spanish Moss which grows on trees in the southern part of the US.

I myself have no knowledge of the tree mosses of India but I sent you a Treemail (private message) with information.
