    in central maine and weather is not cooperating this september. first grow and ive found a little bit of bud rot on one of my branches and its supposed to rain for 3 days again.

    should i harvest this branch? its not even alot of bud rot at all but it is a little and ive read it can spread fast.

    Get shut of it and dont dry it and smoke it, make sure you get every last bit otherwise it will return. Have a good look round the rest of the plant, dont be scared to get deep down in to the buds.

    Jeez try and get out there ASAP. Who cares if you get a little wet. Bud rot can spread like wildfire in the right conditions. Considering its going to be rainy for the next day or two your best bet is to get to it right now. You can get a little wet today and have an extra oz to smoke tomorrow, or you can stay dry today and have that one gram of green bud tomorrow. In Maine there are two things that will make you harvest, frost and bud rot! Now is not the time to harvest so start hacking away at those buds.

    ok, well i was up again dam early to shake dam heavy dew off my plants cause theres no SUN again today....AND this mold issue could be under control...this fungiside i sprayed on a spot of mold seemed to have worked for now...i sprayed it directly on the mold spot from 2inches away..it like washed the mold away and i just kept spraying until mold was gone...now theres a bit on the stem still but the bottle says it will kill it as well in 24hrs...says its safe to spray on buds ,, but also says not to spray on buds 24hrs before harvest...i was up early and of course had to smoke a joint for the walk to the plants ,and forgot my dam phone to take pics of this shit in action...heading back out to them shortly to check and try and remember my phone for some pics..
