    Default Just a quick question about the difference between mold and harvesting late...

    Hey guys. Been a long time. After that saga with the raid and everything, I've been up and running since Sept and just literally just harvested my first crop. Had humidity problems during first few weeks of flower but dropped right down to below 40% after week 4 up until harvest. Had 10 Lemon Ammos growing under 600 HPS in coco. The problem I have here is, the plant with the fattest colas, looked like it had just died. I missed a feed and 90% of the leaves dropped and turned yellow or brown literally overnight. I fed and the leaves perked up a bit but still looked awful. I flushed the next feed. Literally scoured that baby looking for mold but couldn't see any cobweb looking substance. Considering none of the others had rot and RH was between 28% and 49% from week 4 up until harvest, was it just a case of missing the last feed? Or should I go over her again looking for rot. I think I missed the flush window to be honest. Sorry, no pics. I already cleaned her up and chopped her down after flush.

    I not 100% sure what you are asking mate. do you mean, the leaves all dropped and was it mold or was it a last feed. Tbh i dont see it being a last missed feed. were the leaves falling away from buds? have you broken open any buds? tbh mate you will know if you had mold, it totally destroys it. it will look brown when its dry, or grey, it will not look right. bust a few open then you will know. Oh it will have a funny smell also

    I've just dealt with / possibly still dealing with rot.

    If she's rotten, the leaves will pull away from the bud with very little force at all

    The pistils will also go brown on the effected buds while others remain white/orange

    The other thing to consider is the plant being germinated. If it's late in flower there may not be fully formed seeds but the colas will die off

    My pics for reference

    Did about 5 checks. It wasn't rot. I've had rot once before so I know how to identify it. The pistils all looked normal. I think I waited too long for harvest. ALL the nitrogen got sucked from the fan leaves and they just died. I dried as normal then tidied up the rest of the leaves. No rot. Would have been strange considering the humidity was below 40% the final 2 weeks and none of the others suffered from rot.

    I'm paranoid about rot because i'm color blind and can't see it so i keep getting my son to check over the cola's, i have a 20lr dehumidifier and as soon as the buds start forming she's up and running on continuous drain set at 40% can't take chances with the dreaded grot man, all the best, G'.

    That must be a nightmare G!

    Bet the extra para goes a long way to help prevent it though

    Yeah it can be a bit of a problem at times brother, got me a pair of encroma "color blind glasses" they no good for indoor use but on a nice sunny day out of doors they are awesome mate, first time i really used them was a holiday in Scotland last autumn and the drive up was amazing with all the autumn tree colors which i'd never seen before all the best bro', G'.

    hmmmm clamky noises? could be the compressor stalling. Wait hang on, is it working well? if not then keep an ear for a kind clunky stalling sound, it may try to start several times and then abort. if its doing this then probs best for a new one.
