I’ve been getting close to harvest and checking the buds and the 6th week of flower some of my biggest buds were having all their pistils turn rust color and then they started to look dried out so I chopped them and did the trimming at the buds and gaddamit lil green caterpillars eating away at the bud from inside. Some are so tiny you only see them when you hang them to dry and then you see a bunch of these wiggling climate change refugees. So 1/3 of my nicest buds I took down because I thought they matured fast but they were just dried out from worms. Took em down 1-2 weeks early, the smaller buds that I left on are now so damn sticky and nice.
Next year I’m really going to look for those suckers, gotta check once you go into flower. There are sprays you can use but I’d rather not if I can manually check.
So many mistakes but next year I am going to do a really solid grow. If you want to check out a brief grow vid I did
