Help identifying white stuff on the stem of my plan

Hello everybody! I'm a first time grower and I need some guidence from you guys.
First some info about my grow:
-Strain: she(I hope so) is a bagseed
-Tent: 80x80x180 cm / 3x3x6
-Light: I started with 1 20w cfl then switched to 200w DIY Cob LEDs so I believe thats why it had an initial stretch that affected her growth rate.
-Soil: I bought an organic supermarket soil with a ph value around 5.9-6.5 with mykos
I germinated and planted her on 3 april so it's been 31 days. I water her every 3 day with 2 oz (60ml) water around 6.5-7.0 pH.
I also have 12cm usb fan that i turn on occasionally.

My question is I discovered some white stuff on its lower stem today. I researched a bit and I always came up with fungi but it doesn’t look like that since it’s not powdery I thinking it might be roots? Because I transplanted her lower. What do you guys think? Bonus question is it too early to train her? I’m thinking LST tying her to the side of the pot like a in week or two. Should I top her too? Thank you!
(Sorry for the blurple pics )

Hiya @Paperboii I'd guess that is just a outer layer of skin coming off...based on that third pick I've seen that before...kinda like papery/flakey stuff right? Kinda like molting on a reptile. You are plenty old enough to start training, just remember to take your time! CHeers, gl! :yahoo:
