Hi @Katoom, you are correct,  to me also that certainly looks like bud rot (mould) and you need to take ALL of the affected area off as it spreads like wild fire.

 

It is strange really because your plants do not seem to be too far into the flowering stage either and I would expect to see this on plants more into the flowering stage as the buds would be more dense than what you have now.

 

Looks like you are outside which has a positive and a negative, the positive is that your plants are not in a confined space such as a grow tent but the negative is that they are very vulnerable to the damp hence the bud rot what you are seeing now.

 

Act fast and hopefully it will not spread.

Yes sorry man this is mold, and the problem is pretty advanced already, the best you can do is cut a few cm from the rotten part and make sure that rest is perfectly clean, try to move as little as possible as the spores are super volatile otherwise it will spread even more so dont touch the good buds after cutting it. and watch really carefully your plant in the inside of all your buds, It often happens in mid flowering when the weather is a bit humid and the buds a bit dense and resined. the only thing you can do is make sure they stay as dry as posible and always open a bit your buds to check them reguraly.

 

Have a good grow and good luck

And also make sure you have no caterpillar eating the bud from inside it can be a cause of mold in outdoor as well.

My aunt once had the pest infestation on her cannabis along with the mold. She was so depressed on seeing the her cannabis at this situation. But thanks to the pest control Folsom CA team who gave her an organic pest control spraying and got all the infestation exterminated from her plant. The team not only excludes the rodents, but also gives the clean extermination of all kinds of pest. Now that plant is well and healthy.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
