This is my first attempt at growing, & I’m really not sure whether this is bud rot. At first I thought it was the normal dying-off that I’ve read is a sign of readiness for harvest, but it looked a little too unhealthy. After second guessing myself several times, I trimmed a few of the buds that looked like this. I want to make sure I don’t harvest a healthy, immature plant or wait too long to try to salvage the rest.
The strain is White Widow autoflower. The plant was a runt but matured earlier than my other plants & flowered heartily, & it smells fantastic.
