This forum has been such a great resource. Thank you all for participating and sharing your knowledge. It’s really helped me in this first grow.
So, yesterday I learned that I have a caterpillar problem. I’ve probably picked 10 off of 3-4 of my plants. There’s a lot of wild milkweed in the area where I keep my plants. I should have seen that problem coming. I’m at 71 days on my oldest WW Autos. Is there any saving the buds the caterpillars have seemed to get into? Should I harvest early and just see what happens? I assume that otherwise I need to cut off the affected buds?
Here are the pics of the damage and the current state of the trichomes.
