So I had the powdery mildew on this, my first outdoor grow. I was told to use “crop control” foliar spray at the end of the day. Which I did… and even kept them under a tent the next day just for precaution.
They seemed fine… but now I’m noticing what appears to be burnt pistons. I also realized I messed up and have no idea what week of flower I am on. I have also been using fox farms nutes. But am going to start flushing now.
But back to main question… do you think I’ve ruined the flower? Are they burned? Is there any advice you expert growers could give me? Should I just harvest now and forget the flush? I’m so devistated. I feel like the last 3 months of my life has been trying to keep these plants away from bugs, and disease… and now this.
Also @Moxyman if you look at your most recent pic you have a prime example of why we are saying it may have been. It’s because the 2 white hairs are browning from the tips down! Atleast this is what lead me to believe such.
What is in the “crop control” spray you used? There are a lot of things you can use to kill white powdery mildew, easiest is diluted milk and water. Another is 1 shot glass of regular household ammonia to 1 litre/quart of water. Sprayed at dusk so the sun doesn’t burn them.
Your buds look fine, they may be pregnant, or maybe the spray you used curled the tips of the pistils. Let them ride out another 5 weeks until they are finished, and just make sure you do a good bud wash with hydrogen peroxide and water, then rinse with plain water, hang and dry.
But to answer your questions…No, you haven’t ruined the flower. No, they are not burned (they may be pollenated). Keep them growing and don’t flush.
And yes, pollen can travel 10 miles in a wind. The joys of outdoor growing!
