    Hi everyone

    I have not been here for awhile , I took a little break . I was going to move and thought I was gonna move to a place were I might be able to grow so I cut my plants down like 7 weeks in to flower, dried them not long enough and put them in a mason jar, came to give them some air and could see there was this white mold on alot of the buds, knew I was not going to want to smoke it, I let the buds sit out for awhile and then once I knew they were really dry I put them back in the mason jar, they have just been sitting in there for the past while and I open them from time to time, there still seems some white stuff but it has turned to powder. Was wondering if anyone is familiar with this . I dont think this bud is gonna be worth smoking but I was wondering if there is any other way to salvage this bud.

    qwiso or other solvent concentration should kill and/or filter any mold, if that's worth the effort.

    Question Emilya
    I'm almost ready to flower n have found u can make a female plant pollinate itself by leaving it in flower to long will the seeds it produces be female not sure if it could b a way to guarantee female seeds just curious thanks

    yes, it is true that a plant left too long will pollinate itself and if you have the time to devote to this process it is one of the methods used to get seeds. Another and more common way of doing this, because it takes less time, is to chemically induce stress in the plant (again a variety of methods available to do this). Since there is no male involved in either of these processes, the seeds that are produced can not have the male chromosomes, so they are "feminized" seeds and should (without stress) produce female plants. Nature is funny though... there are no 100% guarantees.

    Dry having a hard time with my new phone lol well one more question if got cause
    for a potential mold hazard OK so I can't post pics on her my can res is to high m I have no idea how to lower it my pics are bigger then the 4 mbs allowed but in two of them the buds didn't grow far out the stayed like right up against the stem n grew kinda up n out but still really close to the stem n grew up into the other bud nodes n became one now they in a sense grew into one another n I'm worried humidity n the dark of the intraped part could create mold how can i separate the buds from each other I can pull a few n the pull out but there really tight n don't want to snap them

    no clue what you mean... need a picture. I suggest a fan in the grow room to stop mold and let the plants grow the way they want to... every strain will act a little differently.

    smoking mold can make you very ill... don't do it. At best, send these buds to oil.

    I would not recommend using moldy buds in any way, shape, or form. Black mold is so dangerous because it can cause respiratory problems from breathing in the spores, and a host of other problems if ingested.

    Even though your buds have white mold on them, I wouldn't take a chance that it could be dangerous, if not as common as black mold. No telling how many different species of mold is around.
