Orange string like thing on my eggplant?
Polk County, Florida, United States
I found something really unusual this morning on one of my eggplant seedlings. It looked like a piece of orange string and it was wrapped around the seedling (which is about 5-6" tall). The orange thing had no leaves or anything else on it but when I touched it the seedling broke in half where the orange thing was wrapped tightly around the stem. When I unwrapped it, it just feels like any thin vine but without leaves and it's orange. Does anyone know what this might be? I have never seen it before and it wasn't on anything else in the garden. I don't even know what to look under if I was to google it. Thanks for any help!
