    This is pretty embarrassing as I was on here last week asking about my plant yellowing and I had solved the issue with some veg nutes thanks to everyone's help, but now I've gone and cooked my plant !

    I noticed spider mites and being so late in flower only thing I could think safe to use and use on buds was pyrethum so I got a bottle of this and so so stupidly i know I shouldn't have done it but I thought 15 mins in the sun while still soaking in the shit wouldn't hurt it but now it's fucked.

    Long story short I know she's fucked and it's really embarrassing because I wasn't doing to bad for a first grow but now I'm just hoping any wisdom from anyone on what to do next , will she limp it to harvest the next 3 weeks or is she pretty much a goner, heres some pics , a lot of leaves are damaged and I didn't have to many left in the first place also all my pistils have gone brown overnight when before I sprayed them they were only beginning to go brown .

    Please any help or guidance on my next moves or anything to get her through the next few weeks , thanks in advance !

    Lightly sprayed the buds in the process of spraying all leaves , I researched pyrethum u was ok to spray all over the plant and degrades in the sun fast ?

    I just double checked and seems perfectly fine to use , the issue was I put it in the sun after so droplets burnt all the leaves , anyways I'm just wondering if the plant can be managed to make it the distance and a little scientific or experienced explanations on the answers , thanks mate

    It is usualy mixed with some oil to make it stick to the leaves better.
    This is a problem if you try to spray them under some point source lights.
    Best is to spray just before the lights go off or sun goes down.

    Chrysanthemum oil is non toxic so you are safe there. On a side note they dont look "fucked" as you say. They look a little weathered but i hink they will recover.

    They will survive, there is just no chance I'd smoke it.

    Pyrethrum is fine on flower but the sun is where you messed up. Only spray in dark or low light conditions. Pyrethrum is just an extract from dried daisy heads. I have used it before and the buds tested negative for any pesticides. Try to avoid spraying the buds directly if possible and have lots of airflow. Pretty much when you spray you want it to dry under 5 min. Oh yea, for future ref i hold a piece of cardboard in front of the bud as i spray the surrounding leaves.

    I'm with those that wouldn't spray that on flowering plants. At the stage that plant is at and since it is only one I would have manually removed the mites. I've used wet rags to wipe them off, and a vacuum to suck them off. I would never spray anything on the buds. They say pyrethrum is non toxic and safe to use up until the day of harvest but that is for fruits and vegetables that can easily be washed. You can't wash that off of the buds. I wouldn't smoke it but that's just me. Others might not worry about what any residual pyrethrum turns into when it is burned but I do.

    I wouldn't but others might. I also want to say that it could be perfectly safe. I don't know. And when I don't know something I err on the side of caution. I'm not saying not to consume it. I'm just saying I wouldn't.

    Id go through he whole process, worst case scenario you better your craft. Best case scenario, you see that pure pyrethren is non toxic. You ingest far worse in your daily life that you dont even know. I think a few ounces of smoke is ok.

    Alright so an update as promised , it's been 11 days since the incident and although the leaves went from bad to worse from that day ( as in worse I mean crisped up bad where they were effected and died off a bit, but was probably expected) I continued the process and kept doing everything as I'm meant to and hopeing for the best along the way. Anyways maybe since the last 7 days my buds have started to put on size and get dense and there's a lot of resin and more intense smell, I'd guess there shouldn't be more then 2-3 weeks max left from this point from all the info I've gathered on the internet I just have to keep watch on the tricombs. Anyways a couple days ago I had a day with a bit of rain and sunshine followed straight after and I wasn't home so didn't move the pot and the buds took a rinse and dried out that day and since then there's been no mould since I've been checking. Anyways I took a small bud from the bottom of the plant and did this shitty quick dry method in the microwave and to my surprise it actually got me decent high ( I don't know the strain because was from a work mates friend who I can't get in touch with but back when i got it he said the strain was potent) but it's obviously no too strong just yet with a while to go and with that said the high only lasted just bout an hour. So with everything I've said and testing done , I think that it's safe to smoke still and my guess is the potency will develop these next 2 weeks and although there could of been a lot bigger yield if things were done better, I still think I'm in for some good bud at the end of all these ups and downs, here's some pics of where it's at now and I must admit the photos don't do it enough justice.
