    Default Bud Rot at 7 weeks should I chop?

    Have some Dr Krippling IB @ 7 weeks today found rot just starting in a 3 colas. Iv'e taken the bad colas off but pondering whether or not to chop tomorrow, at least maybe the bigger colas.

    Can't get the humidity below 45% so a bit worried. Krippling IB are an 8 week strain so probably only lose a little bit of weight. They won't have been flushed and are not ripened properly but do I have a choice? In past grows I have just removed the villains and got away with it but I really can't afford to lose this crop and the DR Kiplings have large dense colas on them.

    Any advice or reassurance appreciated.

    I think you have answered your own question!

    45% humidity ain't a great issue but the next week or so I can see humidity spiking with the rain we are getting. If it were me then I'd have them down as soon as is possible.

    I flowered multiple amount of times under 60-70% RH and was OK I just try to move as much air in the tent and outside of it too.
    Put a fan below the canopy.. and 2 x 7" fans above the canopy.. thats for every square meter or so.. the problem is at night when it gets to 90%.

    Only way to solve that was to keep the tent half open for the night..

    Well lads, I have decided to take a chance and give it another week. Took all of the rot out yesterday, non of it was bad but it was in a good few colas (mainly on one plant so I took all of the big colas off that one). Checking them cola by cola twice each day. If I find anymore it will come down.

    Thanks for all of the advice.

    Just to update, decided to take a chance and manage the bud rot rather than chop it all. Chopped all of the large dense colas @7 week and then just cut any new rot of as it appeared. Seems to be working out.

    Will all be coming down this week. Maybe lost an oz but what I have saved will hopefully be better quality than a premature harvest.
