Just harvested my plant and the main cola has a dead brown patch on it very weird, wasn't wet or mouldy and didn't smell, take a look at the pics. Even with the dead cut off the main cola was 41/2 oz wet with a total wet weight of around 60oz wet so BIG shout out to the shark as this was my first grow and just followed his hydro diary
yeah is rot - am assuming thats delahaze right?
check it every week while it's drying/curing too mate - i found 2 small patches on buds last night - they have been in the jars for around 3 weeks.. luckily it hadn't spread. delahaze seems prone to the rot for some reason.. is a shame cos it flowers so well. just make sure you cut it all out & you should be ok

Hey. What actually causes bud rot? Never seen it before???
Remember to leave thanks if I've helped ya
Budrot (Botrytis) is a very common worldwide fungus that attacks both indoor and outdoor crops under certain conditions. “Budrot” is also known as “brown rot”, “grey mold” and other names. Airborne Botrytis spores can be found everywhere, all times of the year, and will attack many different species of plants. Botrytis will attack flowers, and eventually leaves and stems.
Growers running sea of green, perpetual harvest, remote grows, outdoor, or multiple strains (each with different flowering periods) should keep an eye out for Botrytis near harvest time.
Outdoor growers need to be hypersensitive to weather conditions near harvest time. Rain, morning dew, frost and cool fall nights may increase the risk of budrot and powdery mildew.
Fully developed marijuana buds provide ideal conditions for spore germination: warm and moist plant tissues. Botrytis will initially attack
the largest and densest buds in the garden, because they provide the ideal conditions for germination. Weak plants will also be attacked rapidly.
