    Hello. This is my first time growing and i actually just kind of winged it. This plant was grown completely outdoors and almost 100% all natural. I started around june, and now it is currently budding. The buds are still kind of small, and only a few of the hairs have turned red so far. A few random buds along the main stem and some along the lower branches have turned black looking. Any idea what could be causing this? I will post pictures up real soon. any help is appreciated.

    Thanks you. Is it best to pluck off the black parts or just cut the whole bud cluster off the branch? and any idea what caused this?

    damn okay, was hoping it didnt have to come to that. Is it likely it will spread otherwise?

    yes, it happened to me a couple years ago when i tried saving one of my outdoor plants. Just take off any buds that have it.

    I actually discoverd 2 tiny tiny worm looking things in some of the buds i was plucking off. Is that the cause of the buds rotting? how can i prevent these insects from getting in there? any help appreciated. thanks

    insects wont be as attracted to a plant that isnt "dank" and holding excess moisture. if youre indoors, get a dehumidifier or some fans or a wall a/c unit which also dries out the air.. and if youre growing outside..maybe pick a drier spot?

    This is an outdoor grow. unfortunatley my area is pretty humid, even in this part of the season. There is a pretty nice breeze all the time which i figured would prevent this. Are the worms what are causing the buds to rot or is the humidty?

    it could be the time of the year as well. Sometimes certain insects are more prone to being more prevalent during certain seasons. But the moisture definately isn't helping matters.

    thank you very much for your help. i got rid of alot of the buds that have turned black already, i hope it does not spread. the plant is only about a foot or so tall. so i hope not too much is going to have to be lost. The humidity has dropped a bit also. hopefully thats all for that.
