Bad news. With bigger buds come bigger problems...like mold. Went to water the plants today and noticed this. Humidity has been below 60 and I've got 3 circulation fans inside the tent as well as exhaust going 24/7. At least I caught it early (I hope)

Oh no☹️☹️man so sorry to hear that.
Is it just the one spot? What plant is that?
Only one I got bud rot last 5 or so years was doho x wedding cake that I got rid of recently, didnt put it on the menu because it did it. And I would only get it deep In side the buds you couldn't even see until you open up a bud and a puff would come out.

Your night time humidity is below 60 as well?
I know mine can jump 10 or more percent at lights out.

That's on the SD. The one growing the massive moose bangers 😕 thankfully it was just on the top of one of the lowest branches but still. Now like @PipeCarver I'm going to be paranoid as hell and it's worse right now because I can't even take plants out to properly inspect to see if there are any other spots. I'll be checking the tent humidity when I get up this morning

At least it's just the one I guess, was that one side not getting any air circulation? Or up against something?
I know a long time ago when I tried dp blueberry I let a bud rest against the tent to long and it go some bud rot.

So your night time humidity is just under 60? Or your day? Or both
Do you run dehumidifier at lights off?
I find if I don't my humidity when lights are out will go well over 60

That sucks man, I feel for you. Best way to never get mold is don't grow.

Yeah I think it was getting up to 80 lately without me noticing 🤦‍♂️ and the one that had mold was flopped over possibly up against the side of the tent. I've got a couple more that are up against the back of the tent I will take a look at them tonight if I can. I don't have any dehumidifier running at all no....might need to look into one here but I don't want the extra heat.

Check humidity for the first hour after dark. Thats when it occurs when the temps drop.

I use a controller and set my temps to drop slowly so my dehumidifier can easily keep up.

But i bet thats when it’s happening since in order for it to take hold the conditions need to be met a few days in a row. So thats why i say thats likely the culprit

So I checked twice last night once about 45 mins after lights went out and again about 4 hours later. Both times the humidity was showing 59/58%. But this was after I had increased my exhaust fan about 20% after discovering the moldy bud. I'm thinking maybe that hydrometer isn't terribly accurate either and my other one is about 8 years old.

Hey shaded you check out those other buds? I'm hoping the rest were ok🤞

I try and keep my humidity below 55%, I'd rather it to hot from a dehumidifier than too much humidity but that's my personal preference. your running led so the heat shouldn't be a factor unless your getting into mid to upper 90s i think

Yeah it seems okay now, I had to bump up my extraction fan about 20-25% on the dial. I guess I'm just not used to the massive humidity swings between seasons and things must have got out of control at night. I checked over the buds as best as I could and I couldn't see anything else but the mold I saw looked so similar to frosty THC that it's a crap shoot at this point with everything frosting up. I can't take the plants out of the tent to inspect them because I've got all the branches tied down and strung up. I'm just gonna ride this out for these last couple of weeks and try my best to spot any more trouble areas when I do my daily status checks.

I hear you, my tent is at 59% and I've my dehu in my flower room only running 24/7 on turbo pulling out now 10 gallons a day.....I've an intake fan pulling in cooler air from a sub basement / oil tank room but the cool air is at 100% just like it is outside. I need the cool air or the temp gets in the 90's so its a battle just to get below 60%....Your mould pics get me nervous...

You tried running it in the 90s?
I think Mines got pretty close to 90 with my led and I wouldn't even have noticed if I didn't look at my pulse all the time, I mean the plants looked good no I'll effects from the heat, maybe hps it might be different. But the hotter the temp the lower the humidity, so if the plants don't have any ill effects from the heat I would just run it in the 90s and not bring in that super humid air or at least not as much.
Worth a try if you haven't tried already.

Nervous is an understatement PC! My anxiety is off the charts when I go to check on my plants now 😩

No, I can't do that. fabric pots are already drying out too fast and I've no choice but to circulate the air. We have an in house ventilation system that brings in cool air in my flower room and I've an extra 6" fan bringing in more into my tent & without them running I have dead air. I need the flow through or I do get mould and not just a little bit I've had mould around my stalks like a large furry mouse and bud rot that killed entire crops....nope.....I've another dehue I'll have to put on now because I'm going to try drying a Bubble Bomb I'm cutting today and I need it in the low 60's for that in another place in my basement workshop that shows 85% right now

The no stress grow is where harmony lives. You have no need to sweat it man, you're a pro.
My room went all bad besides 2 and then I find that my issue causes buffers in a favorable direction. Who could have guessed? Karma... 🤷‍♂️
You do so good you do not need to sweat small talk or perceived shortcomings. As wise as many of us are, and you are, Mother Nature is not to be messed with sometimes.
Soon as you think it all predictable, she will make you humble, to say the least. Sometimes it is what it is. Insert another quarter to play again.🤣
That is how you have a no stress grow.
As long as we live, we can learn.. You're doing great and my wife just looked at me today and said moosecocks?!!🤣
I just looked and shook my head. 🍻

Haha thanks @steamroller and yeah you're right no use sweating the small stuff! I've still got more bud than I know what to do with things could definitely be much worse. Little bit of white mold isn't going to hold me...or these moosecocks back! lol 😎

I am no literate, but I have two books back from the last century.
One is " Don't sweat the small stuff" and other is " Don't sweat the small stuff, and it is all small stuff".
No joke. Real books...
No gambler here, but I bet on myself every time. 💪
You got it going on, multiple strains are a different game.
