Found This on Top of a Bud

I don’t know what caused this on the top of one bud. I pulled it off & attached a picture. I have started treating for small caterpillars. I’m not sure if this is pests or disease. I also have a number of leaves with little brown spots on them.


Top pic is bud rot. Not sure on the spots on leaves.

Probably rotted from caterpillars.

You have mites too. Time for a dose of Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew.


Got it. Thanks. Do I need to remove the entire bud?

I just did the Captain Jacks 3 days ago. Only one dose, but its ready to harvest. Should I remove the entire bud? Should I apply a 50/50 peroxide, leave for a day, harvest then wash? This all ripened pretty fast.


Yeah; if you are ready then do a bud wash at harvest:

So I don’t need to do a 50/50 peroxide spray 1st? Do I need to remove the entire bud? I just want to get this right.

Bud rot spreads quickly. Prepare for harvest.

Cut off anything that looks fuzzy/mushy/brown ASAP. Be careful, it spreads via spores. So dirty fingers, clothing, tools etc. will spread it.

Before trim soak everything in an h2o2 bath. 16oz 3% h2o2 for each 5 gal of water. Then rinse in another bath of fresh water or gently rinse with a hose. Gently shake excess water. Hang to dry.


Thanks for the advice. I am impressed with all of you guys ready to help.
