Hey Y’all, need some advice please.

I’ve currently got some plants drying. They’re all hanging in a box to help slow the dry down I’m my very dry climate.

Today I was checking them out and found a few that had a fewtiny spots of white mold on them.

I cut the visible stolid off and segregated them from the others.

Are they pooched? Am I gonna have to toss em?

My plan is to let them dry down to about 70% as best I can and then put them in jars as burp as usual.

But now that there is mold present, I’m unsure of what to do.

Scope the other hangers and see what you got. Look for where dense buds hug the stem, among elsewhere. It may not have spread, by chance, whack it off. If it's on all plants, squish em

Depends on who ya ask? Which probably depends on what access those people would have to more and when? If it’s any better etc etc. If it were me I’d cut the bad keep the stuff that looks good unless it was some serious molding going on. You could always wash it. But I don’t have the guts to dunk my buds lol

And do you curculate the air inside your cure box? I have a cojple small pc fans on the sides. One blowing up and one down. Kinda like convection oven. Keeps things even rh.

No fans in the cure box! I guess that’s my next purchase.

I’ve never had as much in there as I did this time. I guess it was too much without any circulation. Lesson learned.

If it's a few spots do a bud washing 1 cup peroxide, 5gal Luke warm water,
Even if they are partially dry, I know it sounds crazy but I have done it many times, it can save the day..
How long and vigorous do you wash it?

Use a gentle motion left to right, forward and backward. I also use a lemon and baking soda bucket then a clean water rinse. So 3 buckets total. I use this on all outdoor. A Gentle rinse will not affect the those sweet buds but will clean the hell out of them, dust, hair, shit thats floating around... check the bottom of the bucks its amazing the amount of crap to come off.. and yet the buds glisten no noticeable trichome loss

Depends on how dry they are, if still limp green then I swish them around pretty vigorous for a minute but if they are partially dry be gentle 30 seconds, like Dalton said I use lemon juice and baking soda but if you have some mold use peroxide then rinse in plain water then hang and dry....

You'll know a few days after you actually jar it whether you missed any.

I lost a few jars to this and put some thought into possible solutions. The best one is hash. Trich's don't mold, vegetation does.

Clean the stuff then bubble wash it. And I am not sure on the baking soda thing in the wash. if you let a drop of that evaporate, the layer of remaining baking soda will be evident. On frosty buds you could never tell if it was all rinsed off. I don't normally smoke baking soda, but on the off chance that it is habit forming, hard pass :ROFLMAO:

Baking soda is perfect scouring powder for cleaning that bucket pre-wash though.

baking soda brakes down pretty much all debris at a chemical level and lemon juice is a antiseptic. they go in the first bucket, Peroxide in the next bucket kills all bacteria, fungi, and mold. Last bucket clean R.O or Distilled Water for the final rinse ( as long as you properly rinse no residue will be left behind)

The h2o2 will kill anything harmful. and the actual wash process should remove any 'debris' regardless of water additives.
