Hi all,

I have a potentially worrying situation on hand πŸ™

My outdoor grow which I was planning to harvest next week has a few buds where there is slightly browner looking patch on it. I am worried that this could be bud rot and may have been caused by all the rain we have had in the last few weeks... I've attached a few pictures below. Any advice appreciated!

Thanks

Dude

Its a little off colour, but not sure if its rot mate..... rub your thumb on it, see if it falls off easily. It might just be going a bit purple because of coldΒ

@macky - Thanks Macky. If I rub it and it falls off then would that suggest bud rot? In which case is there anything I can do at this stage? or is the whole plant going to have to be lost πŸ™

If it falls off its bud rot mate. You will have to remove that cola, but the rest of the plant will be fine as long as it doesn't have rot or mould tooΒ

  • when do you water (just before lights on)
  • do remove any water in trays after wateringΒ 
  • how thick is the canopyΒ

@jacks_farm - Thanks Jack but I am outdoors on this single plant grow... unfortunately with all the rain recently where I am I think this was a contributing factor...
