Furry mould on curing buds

Hi there,
I harvested approx 10 days ago, I let dry and then jarred up the buds in small quantities to ensure plenty of air circulation. I have been burping them daily expect I let the go for 3 days as I was away.
I have come back and each jar, 6 in total has a bud with some light flurry mould.

Please don’t tell me the whole crop is ruined? I would literally cry!

Any suggestions on why this is happening?

Pics would definitely help but I’ve never heard of anyone being able to save moldy buds in the curing stage. I have heard of bud washing but I assume at this point its too late. I’ll tag @Hellraiser @PurpNGold74 @Myfriendis410 @latewood and hopefully they can steer you in the right direction. Worst case scenario sorry for your loss brother I hope for the best


Not dry enough before putting in jars. All you can do is a close exam and discard anything with mold on it. Plant material needs to be laid out and dried more before going in jars.


Is it possible to do a peroxide wash and re dry.

I lost count on how many times in the past I have handed back a sack with mold in it Don’t jack with your lungs.


After doing a little reading I am thinking of trying to do a QWISO extract. It sounds like 90% + alcohol would kill the spores.

Thoughts or feedback?

I would like to know as well. I’m wondering if ya stick it in the oven for decarb that’s probably going to kill some as well. Still wouldn’t smoke it. Any mold in your lungs will not turn out good. No buzz is worth that.

Yeah I am going to try out tincture method.
Oven decarb then 190 proof and 95% alcohol.
Loads of videos on you tube about it thankfully!


Pleased to report the tincture came up a treat :ok_hand:

Potent stuff!
