What are these hairs on my buds?

A couple of my (indoor grow) buds seem to have acquired a few fine hairs. They almost look like fine human hair rather than mite web, but I have no experience. I’m very close to harvest. What are theses things?? Is it a pest? Is it too late to treat?

They look like either dog or human hairs? Are they all over the entire plant or just in one place? You can fill out a support ticket to give us a better knowledge of the issue

Hairs show on only two buds. One of the hairs was relatively strong, with one end darker than the other. Another hair was delicate like spider web. It’s early for harvest (see photo), but I could bail and harvest now if the future is grim.

Umm, I’m not sure hinestly about the delicate,spider wed like one.

I agree with diesel I think it’s just human for pet hair reach in there and pull them off I don’t think you have anything to worry about it doesn’t look anything like a Web to me because it has color


Looks like human hair lol


Lol… your sticky little ladies are gathering everything and anything in the air, or on you during your contact. I am experiencing very similar hairs on my plants from my hippie mop. Time to bust out the shower cap and lab coat!


I agree with the rest of the group hair
Pull it and look at it under your loop you should be able to determine what it is :+1:
