Hi guys, new to the forums here, though I come by once in awhile for information. I've been growing for about 4 years outdoors and have not run into this problem before.
I have outdoor plants grown from bag seed about 3 weeks away from harvesting, and I noticed the buds were turning brown and dying, along with the small leaves around the buds. I've seen grasshoppers on the plants, and thought that might be the problem.
I did a more intense inspection today and opened one of the buds up and found a tiny brown worm inside. I picked a few more and found the same problem.
I'm posting a pic- sorry for the quality- the blue thing to the left of the pic is a cig lighter, so you can get an idea of the size.
