Bud with dark orange hairs now growing white ones, and edges of sugar leaves going purple/brown

I can’t tell whether this is ready to harvest-I can’t see the trichomes with the magnifying lens I got from a pot for pot, so I am looking at the hairs 90% are dark orange/red but also with new white bunches?

Also the leaves have been going brown on the edges. It doesn’t appear to be mould as it is outside in-from the leaves in, the bud inside is green.

Any idea on what the discolouration is and when I should harvest? I have no idea how long this has been flowering for.

The dark brown spots is bud rot. Anything with that should be tossed. Does it fall apart when touched?

Can anyone confirm visually if this looks like bud rot?


Looks like bud rot to me as well, and a bad thrips infestation - all the silvery-white marks.


I concur


I agree as well


i should have concurred

Thanks all. Does the whole plant go due to the thrips or can I was the plant bits that are ok?

I wouldn’t feel comfortable ingesting any part of the plant with bud rot. But that’s just me.
