I took some up close pictures of the flask and have a couple questions. First; is it just me or does it look like there are a couple bad looking things in the flask? I put the arrows to point at areas i'm concerned about. The fat arrow is pointing at a clump that looks like it has "vestigial" leaves?? Does anyone know if that is what that weird looking clump is?? I was going to leave the flask alone, but now that I see brown I'm worried. I wasn't sure they were big enough, although I do see at least two that are nice size.
Any suggestions appreciated...
