    Default Potential bud rot?

    Soil or hydro or coco: soil

    Strain: Ministry of Cannabis - Autopilot XXL & Fastbuds C4-matic

    Photo or Auto: Auto

    plant age: 83 days

    soil type: Westland MP W/John Innes

    nutes or additives used and how often for soil: Poundland hydrococo bloom, pk 13/14 and liquid seaweed, not been fed for around a week, also not watered for maybe a week as they are outside and have never really dried up.

    I'm assuming bud rot on the Autopilot - the main cola is very limp and feels very flimsy compared to a few days ago, on closer inspection there are stringy/elastic white threads in-between all the nodes on the bud and the leaves directly around have started curling and shriveling. All but site below the main cola seem unaffected?

    C4 the bud sites seem ok but on one of them the leaves appear to be dying/died?

    Both plants have all milky trichs and maybe 5% amber (only see amber's under a loupe maybe every other inspection so definitely not a lot of them) now with the UK weather not looking as though it's going to improve significantly enough should I give them the chop now and dry/cure them so I at least have something to smoke after my efforts.

    C4-matic - dead/dying leaves


    Autopilot - potential bud rot

    Will the rot not make the hash bad though?


    Am I able to cut off the affected bud sites off and dry / cure the the rest of the plant as normal?

    Also I have another C4 auto that appears to be fine but should I chop her too so I avoid any potential problems before she's ready?

    First grow but hey you live and learn I guess onto the next

    Thank you for your input guys, I love the talk 😁

    Thank you dude, so do you think I can cut the section with rot off and still harvest the rest as it only appears to be the main cola the rest below seem completely unaffected.

    The C4 is odd the colas seem completely unaffected but one budsite the leaves have just died?

    wont be the best but the water will hold on to most of the mold, i did it with powdery mildew which i also washed off first, might be diff story for actual bud rot tho.
    if your in europe id chop her now. this weather is a recipe for mould and rot

    Anything rotten should be completely removed before washing. Dont use the rotten weed to make hash.

    Affected bud sites now gone!



    Here she is after chopping the rotten buds -


    Edit (forgot to add text haha) ideally I'd like to smoke the flowers not make hash, you think that is possible or should I just bite the bullet and turn them into hash?

    She looks good to me. I would lightly wash before drying and then it should be fine to smoke.

    Awesome thanks man 👍

    Now onto possibly a ridiculous question, to 'wash' them am I cutting them where they meet the soil, putting them under the shower head and hanging them above the bath to drip dry?

    Also I thought I had a little while to go before harvest, so I have nowhere to dry them lol I can get a largish cardboard box tomorrow but other than that only other place is maybe the attic anyone have any ideas

    Dont use the shower head. Fill a bucket
    Submerge fully, pull it out and hang to dry.

    I use a standalone carbon filter with a blower directly on top placed next to the drying branches. Nothing blowing on them. Just near them.

    If you don't have a spare filter and blower then hanging in a box with holes inside your tent is your best bet I think.

    Brilliant ok so just cold water in a bucket, splash around a bit (gently) then hang them up 👍

    I don't have a tent dude I grew them outside, so you think cardboard box with holes popped in the side and stuck in the corner of the bedroom (baby, cat, dog won't allow the box to be anywhere else but the attic) think that will work?

    Awesome that's the ticket then.

    I was looking at washing methods, and alot of people seem to be using lemon juice with bicarbonate soda and 3 different buckets, do I need to go this route or can I just use a single bucket and ommit the lemon juice and bicarb? (I only posses one bucket for a start lol)

    Ok so checked them this morning (hanging over the bath after their wash)

    The rot had spread some more 😭 so now I've clipped all the buds off and stuck them in a brown paper bag in the airing cupboard.

    Other 2 seem fine so they will go in a cardboard box later on today.

    I may just get a single smoke from all this 😂 that will be one hella expensive spliff

    I have however got the smallest amount of Charras from handling and cutting the autopilot lol
