Q.Please ID what pests or fungus is growing in my Yucca Cane plant?
I have been taking care of them but they are indoors. It’s winter in DC. Recently, they started wilting and going yellow. There is black bumpy growth covering the stoop – looks like an insect egg thing. I’ve spent 4 hours trying to identify what it is but I can’t find anything. Please help

This seems like a fungal infection. Since this is in container, it will be easy to treat. Mix 1/4 peroxide with 3/4 water and water in once. Make sure to let the soil dry out completely down to about 2 or 3 inches down before watering again. This will help prevent infections in the future.
You will also want to try and remove any infected portions of the plant if you can. This will help in getting rid of the infection.
