I'm still trying to figure out how to avoid bud rot after 5 days of pouring rain & 50° highs.
Of course, the flip side of the coin is that the mushrooms have been phenomenal this year.
btw -- great grow & great pics! [/quote]
I was very busy and unable to update, but my sweet fall shower turned into 3 inches of early rain over a period of almost 10 days, and temps were similar. I did eventually experience a loss to rot, generally where a dead leaf projected from the bud and became a site for mildew. Fortunately everything was really healthy going into it and temps picked up but I did experience a 5% loss or so on a few of the plants, and of course it’s right on the tops of your best colas when it happens. It’s just a part of growing weed. If you want to get serious, which I may do next year(hobby serious) a greenhouse is the way to go. You can add a dehumidifier and temp control and more or less create ideal finishing conditions. The rain made me glad I don’t do this for a living!! This is big weed country, and you could feel the stress in the air, and there wasn’t a tarp to be found in town!
