Freaking Bud Rotted Autos Again

Is there no outside grow category or did I miss it? If there are any growers on here that really need help its an inside grower trying to grow outside. LOL

Anyway, its been wet in Maine this summer, I am guessing it always is but I do know there are hobby and commercial growers up here growing outside so I know it possible even with a short season. 

Yesterday we had a little rain in the afternoon, after it was over I shook off what water I could just like I have been  doing. This afternoon I came home and saw bud rot on all 3 autos, not a lot but it would be a lot by tomorrow afternoon, So I cut it off and we will see how it goes. Nice looking and great smelling Lemon OG autos probably about 2 weeks out. I love the photo period, great smoke and huge yields. 

Any outside growers in New England got any advise to help me?  I am thinking maybe autos should go out later in the summer so they less moist naturally in July and August?  I am also wondering if there will be enough time for the photo periods to finish or at least get big enough buds to rot? They started to show pistils about 3 -4 weeks ago but still dont have anything growing I could call a bud. The sister clones in RDWC I have going inside are covered with big balls of pistils and I did the flip a week or more after the outdoor plants showed signs of flower

        • Unfortunately bud rot is part of the OD game EVERYWHERE ! Remove it as soon as you see it, is about all you can do. I'm in Missouri and I grow more than I need to compensate for problems like this. I'm sure you know, but air flow, heavy dew, high humidity, high N levels, and dense growin plants are all contributors to BR. Do what you can to alleviate these things. As a last resort, after you remove BR buds from the stem, you can spray the area on the remaining stem with a 50/50 solution of hydrogen peroxide. This will kill the remaining spores that might be hangin around. Happy growin
