Hey all, first grow and first post here. I'm near the end of flower, planning on doing the chop in a couple days. Today i noticed a couple buds with some browning, not so healthy looking sugar leaves right at the top of the buds on one of my 3 plants. The affected leaves were also starting to curl up, and were fairly stiff. I chopped them off and dissected them, there was a maybe a little bit of brown on the inside but they we not mushy or brittle like i've read bud rot can be, and no visible signs of white mold. I thought maybe its overripe since this one matured a little faster than the other 2, although the trichomes are not overly amber (maybe i'm just trying to convince myself its not bud rot). Like i said, i'll be harvesting them in a couple days and hanging them in the tent to dry and then i'm off to the lake for 5 days, so i can't keep an eye on them to watch out for mold during the drying process. I'm pretty concerned that if this does look like the start of bud rot, that there could be more hiding in other buds that might spread to the other 2 plants during the drying process. Any insight to what this looks like to people would be great, as well as any advice on how to handle the situation. Thanks!

Ya got bud rot. Next grow don’t mist plant during flower and maintain a lower humidity during flower.
I made sure not to mist in flower. I've been maintaining around 40 to 45% humidy with use of a dehumidifer, exhaust fan out the window, and 2 fans moving air around. Although it got quite humid (low 50's) in the tent a few days after the final flush...

Then I don’t know. That is strange.
I run humidity in mid 50’s and temp in mid 60’s 12 hours and 74 during day.
When I quit overthinking everything and started growing in soil 95% of my growing issues went away
