Hello ILGM Community.
I am 1 week into curing my first ever harvest. It seems the learning experience isn’t over yet…smh.
I was inspecting the jars during their morning burp and discovered some mold growth on a few of the buds… pictured below. What a huge disappointment.
I have used hygrometers and Boveda packs to ensure a stable 60-63% environment in the jars. I have opened them once per day to breathe.
DO I NEED TO TOSS OUT THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF THE JAR AT THIS POINT?
And would this be a product of inadequate drying before jarring? Or something that was on the plant from its time outside? There was some bud rot / pest damage on the flowers from the wet and humid summer, but I tried to remove all damaged buds before drying.
I am about to inspect the rest of the jars and am nervous about what I am going to discover…
Any advice is welcome.
