Newbie with first outdoor grow. I’m 58 days in with an gold Leaf auto in a 5 gallon pot. Natures living soil and just a hit of coast of maine buds and bloom .
Came home today after some two days of intermittent rain and saw this on my stem . Nothing on my small buds this far thst I can see.
Is this the dreaded powdery mildew? Or stem rot ? Would appreciate any help with a quick
Diagnosis before I figure out if it’s salvageable and or what to do
I do have some ILGM MOLD CONTROL but I believe it can’t be used when I flower
I’m about a week into flower …pics below and thanks I advance
