I believe this is some og18 from Reserva Privada. Its 61 days into flower and the lower branches look like they could go another week. But the tops are starting to worry me a bit here are some pics of the tops along with some shots of the trichomes i took. Sorry if they’re not clear, i got one of those digital microscopes and i shake a lot.

The temps have been a little highthe last couple of days climbing up to the mid 80s and occasionally to to 90 never past that though. The humidity has been in the mid 50s aswell, just today i turned on 2 dehumidifiers and got it down to bellow 50s

I've looked all the pics a couple times and I don't see anything that looks like bud rot to me. Maybe you could help me out with where you're concerned. Do you mean the dark color and appearance of the plant material or is there some sort of mold or something I'm not seeing? It's for the best you dropped the humidity at least.

I agree. And bud rot seen on the surface means way more deeper. Yours looks like normal fade, or lights to close
I can spot it early by a more beige or grayish spot seen starting rather than a yellow or brown fade.

When you say 2 days what do you mean..a lot of the fan leafs have turned a pale color but just the ones from the top colas
i mean if that is the onset of budrot starting, in 2 days you'll see it and know it. it happens rather fast once it starts.

I don't see any budrot either. If you wanna make sure, pick the bud you suspect the most and open it up to see what's going on inside. Small price to pay for peace of mind or to discover the budrot at an early stage....

if u have proper ventilation, with humidity below 55% i won't worry at all, its very hard if not impossible to get budrott

My ventilation has been pretty shitty really i have 2 non oscillating fans in a 4x4. Its ok at best, i just added an oscillating fan and removed one of the nons just 10 minutes ago if that, i do have the the inline fan running 24/7 though. So not too much stagnant air i hope.

I chopped one of the nuggs of concern, the one that seemed most affected.. i took some pics of the nugg after a shitty wet trim and some of it broken open to inspect the inside. I dont think it looks too bad.. but i dont want to risk it, last harvest i lost all my large tops, over 100g dried mass.
