    Bug on bud

    Hello my Friends. while taking a picture of the trichomes on my sweet girl, i saw a BUG! does anyone know what type of bug it is, and is there any chance of it causing bud rot. was hoping to let her grow for another week or so. sorry for crappy pics.

    They look like thrips. They will make your leaves look like there is dried spit on them. I've never known them to cause a bud rot. You should be fine. Be sure to inspect any other plants. If you have a veg tent check your veg tent. Neem oil will work. Do not spray your flowering plants. It will ruin your buds. Good luck and happy growing

      thanks Larry, I will do a bud wash at harvest, so we don't smoke any bugs.

        Could be. It's kind of hard to see with those pictures. Either bug is not good to have but I guess it's better than spider mites:-)

          crucialbunny is right. They sure look like aphids.

            Hi johnb1963,
            Don't use Neem, just sayin.

            50/50 alcohol & water sprayed with the lights out to avoid light burn.

            I wouldn't wait too long before harvest either. Amber can take forever & Thrips can get really bad really quick!
            I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
            My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
            I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
            Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!
