hello! i am concerned about my little wandering jew plant here, as it has these small black fuzzy bumps on each of its joints. i just now noticed as i was replanting it, but it doesn't seem to be causing any discoloration or anything besides looking weird. does anyone know what's going on?

They're just nodules on the plant stems. If you cut the stem just below one of those nodes and put it in water that's where the plant roots would come from.

Completely normal.

Why are you replanting it? Can you post a photo of the entire plant? There may be some other issues you are not aware of.
