Hello people,I've running 5 autos and 2;photos ,i thought this would be a good idea for the space im growing in and by the end if the the auto ill have to good 8 to 9 week vedged photos ready to switch. Due to over foliar feeding or just not enough air flow I've run into some issues,1st issue was some pests 2nd i noticed some cotton candy like mold or at first i thought it was a bug if had on an outside grow that bored into the stems of the body sites and fell off. But I've not noticed that this time. Just some white fluff tight in the main colla. Is their any suggestions on what to do. The autos are nearly finished ,so im thinking maybe just cut the lot down and switch the photos onto flower cycle and can i still smoke the bud from these autos with mold or bud rot on it. Thanks in advance for any help.

If you really have bud rot, that main cola might be toast by now. Bud rot grows fast and can destroy your whole crop in a few days. Show pics.

Can you remove parts of the bud very easily? Do leaves sticking out of the cola pull out easily? If so, those parts of the cola are fucked. You have to remove all affected parts of all buds and throw it away.

I never foliar feed when in flower, because bud rot.

They arent best pics but this seems to be right tight in the bottom of the collar were the 2 lower buds start stacking between the single collar

Heres a shot above one that i spreader the side buds out another i toped and let the sides reach up to the top and got 6 nice fat buds but the leaves started to have brown spots and it was like a new growth started in that one plant. Almost like fox tailing with new white pistols and calaxys

That fuzz does look like bud rot.

There may be a calcium issue, too, but I'm not sure about that.
I agree with cal deff as I've not put anything in for calcium,I've just used my normal organic nutes this time instead if a couple other nutes i make myself

So it seems to be only one with the mold and its so sticky with resin. If i remove that one plant carefully and even clean out my room it should be Ok. And can u smoke this bud with mold as it doesn't sound to appealing ..smoking moldy buds lol

I personally wouldn’t smoke moldy bud, but your health, your life, do whatever you want haha

what is the RH of your tent? If it’s above 60% that can become a problem for flowering + it looks like you have some airflow issues in the tent potentially. many people will strip the bottom 1/3 of the plant to increase airflow around the plant and help prevent microclimates that are conducive to mold growing.

those photos look like they are going to be beasts👍

Do not smoke moldy buds the weed smoke on its on is not healthy and
Be on the look out for more you can most of the time identify it without touching look for uneven yellowing that starts at the base of each leaflet where the leaf exists the bud hope I explained myself OK that's I how I would clean mold with my buddy when I worked in medical cannabis a lot of plants at once we wore elite mold hawks ill try and find a good example in my old photos

Do not smoke moldy bud, chop the moldy ones.

You may spray the rest with 50/50 mix Vinegar and Water. Too late on the Autos but I would use Cal-Mag on the rest.

I personally wouldn't smoke moldy bud but I have heard of people using hydrogen peroxide to solve the problem.

Use 1/2 cup peroxide to 1 gallon water.
Use for regular watering and mist regularly.
Keep lights a distance away or droplets would act as magnifier.
After harvest soak the bud in 50/50 water peroxide mix then hang dry in tent at 30 to 40% humidity.

Peroxide will kill all bacteria and add oxygen to soil.

Peroxide is water with a extra oxygen molecules so safe to smoke if dry obviously.

I'very already cut out the one with the mold and i cant get it where i live. It would need to be an amazon job ,but i dont think it will arrive to clean the flower I've chopped.

Here's 1 of 4 buds of 1 auto and still have 3 quarters left of sme under grow and couple tops. This is my second time growing autos and would appreciate if you could put me in the right detection or am I under shooting as this time I let 2 grow normal 1 topped itself I will imagine it putting out nice buds but growth time was slower as everything g was growing from the centre the 1st 2 weeks. The 2 I grow normal one got mold and had to cut it and lost alot of density but the bit I could take with ought mold being on it was OK. Just not enuf time to dry n cute to get that green taste away. Thanks again.
