One of my potted indoor basjoo's hasn't been growing for 3-4 months now. Has 3 good looking pups though. It had about an inch or so of mostly dead on the top so I decided to cut it down / cut off, The inside seams to be all rotted / mushy. While poking around / taking out some mussy bits with tweezers I found some weird bugs.

Ive read about spider mites and these are definitely not them. There very small, About the size of a grain of rice or smaller. There kinda white greenish and some I saw had some brown.

Anyone have any idea what these might be? Should I just cut it down till there's no more rotten? I think its only rotted 1/3 or so the way though the middle.
With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in.
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out.
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going...
