Any of this salvageable?

Very sad day this grow started off going so well and the second half I ran into some major problems, first with WPM then with spider mites. Plants were affected to varying degrees and I had been treating right up to harvest. With Growers Choice Fungicide 3.

So today they got the chop and went into a bud wash 5gal h2o and 1cup h202. Let everything soak for 5-10 min flipped and agitated the branches a few times.

Three major concerns;

  1. some of the buds still have some WPM showing after the wash. If I dry these and break them up is there anything worth saving on these (parts of the bud without the WPM)? Do I even want them in the dry tent or should I cut them off and toss them ASAP so it doesnt spread while drying?

  2. some of the buds are covered in dead spidermites :face_vomiting:. I was hoping they would come off in the wash but looking under a loupe you can see where they are all stuck between the trichomes and very few came off in the bath. While I dont think they are going to come back and spread (no zombie mites), what are the chances I can just trim off the bottom leaves/buds off the affected colas and still find some usabale bud? Or js this a case “cut ties” and dump anything with dead mites on it? Some buds are heavily affected, some have just 1 or 2 visiable and some dont seem to have any.

  3. one bud out of 4 plants has these white “pellets” on it, presumably some type of mold/fungus. Unlike the WPM it was very light, like ash, you could almost blow them off the plant and they all dissapeared in the wash. Any ideas what this is/was?


Sorry to see and hear that. JMHO, I would say cut your losses and move on. It happens!
Good luck and keep’em growin! :+1:t2::v::sunglasses:


I agree… I threw out a whole plant 2 days ago because I found mold in a thick bud. I have too much to chance it…


Ouch sorry about your plants friend…


So sorry for your loss my friend :cry: :cry:

Oh sorry you got it bad. Dont know if id try to save any or not


Shit can it and start over after treating your grow area for spider mites. They’re hard to kill. It’d suck to start over and get mites again.
