We have some confederate jasmine with strange hard, whitish, growth on the vines I have never seen anything like it before. The plants seem healthy overall, no leaf loss, wilting, or yellowing/browning, no other signs of pest or disease. I attached a photo hoping for some help in what it could be? Photo taken Oxford, Fl 9a
Thank you!

Clusters of butterfly or moth eggs.

When I first saw them I thought that too, but this stuff seems like it is part of the plant vine and it's hard. When breaking some off it smells like a plant and just breaks apart when rolled around in my fingers.

Hopefully others will chime in soon with suggestions. It sure looks like moth/butterfly eggs to me.

They look like adventitious roots.

Good eye @sooby/Sue! Thumbs up I never even thought about adventitious roots but I agree, that's what Ari is seeing on that Jasmine vine!

For comparison, there are images of adventitious roots (on tomato plants) on this page: https://www.walterreeves.com/g...

Ari, That photo would make a great addition to our database at the entry for Confederate Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides)

Just click on this link Confederate Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) and then on the left under where it says Adding Actions, click on Upload a photo and follow the directions. If you have any trouble, just give a shout out.
