It’s true. All the Cannabis Indica plants have an unacceptable amount of bud mold on them here on Holmgrown Farm. This is not an unexpected result of 2 hurricanes that fell apart here on the big island of Hawaii and an extended stretch of humidity at 85% with over 50 inches of rain in a very short period of time. Cannabis Indica just is not a fan of these conditions. I know this because this is not the first time I’ve grown this Early Skunk strain here. It is the first time bud mold overtook the plant so early. I was looking for early skunk, not early bud mold.
This strain is from Sensi Seeds and is called Early Skunk. It is an Indica dominant strain that’s 35% Sativa / 65% Indica. When the weather is drier here, she mostly gives huge harvests in 55 days before bud mold really shows its ugly face. Truth be told, this strain will always mold before being really finished. It could use another week past the 55 days. It’s just that even in drier times it still molds. Holmgrown Farm grows it because it makes wonderful edibles and its a super evening smoke.
Before I get a message telling me to grow this cannabis Indica in a greenhouse or undercover let me tell you that I have grown it both ways. Using a greenhouse or under a clear tarp only changes one thing. Undercover, I get powdery mildew in addition to bud mold. I have tried super ventilation of a greenhouse, fans moving the air under tarps. Even have done the deal where you take the tarps down on sunny days and put it back up as the sunsets. It really does not matter or change results. I will not use some kinda weird stuff to try and stop the powdery mildew. I will not spend a whole day wiping down all the leaves trying to keep the powdery mildew at bay. I’ve got 20 plants. Who has the time to wipe plant leaves all day every day?
I must be clear. Holmgrown Farms is in the center of an old growth Ohia Rain Forest. High humidity is just an environmental condition one has to expect as it cant be changed. I guess I could clear all the trees away and have Holmgrown Farm in the middle of a cleared out patch of destroyed Ohia forest. I could never do it. First, the Ohia are dying off at an alarming rate already due to Rapid Ohia Death Disease. I cannot contribute to the loss of Ohia. I personally just have too much respect for the Aina.
Ok, I am going to conclude this now. I hope you have found some use for this Bud Mold On Cannabis Indica Plants post. Aloha
