I thought I’d stemmed the tide of bud rot last weekend when I cut off the one small branch on one of my plants containing a small section of rotten bud. Unfortunately, after a couple more days of rain this week, I’ve found several more rotten bud sections across all three of my cheese auto plants.
I’ve trimmed all the affected branches at least an inch below the affected buds and plan to harvest immediately before it gets any worse. Assuming I’ve removed all the visible rot, should I be ok to cut and hang the plants in a dark, dry indoor area, and proceed to cure and consume if no more rot appears while they’re hung? I’d hate to throw out my whole harvest, and I’m reluctant to try any kind of wash that’s going to introduce more moisture and potentially harm the already somewhat immature trichomes (a mix of clear to white, currently) on these plants.
