Hey Jorge, what is your 2 cents on water curing? I got some really nice dry tight buds… Real potent stuff but it has a nasty taste like FERTILIZERS. Can i water cure it in a jar in my fridge with spring water or does it have to be Distilled at Room temp? Is the Water Cure stupid thing to do? I just want bud that gets me high and is healthier to smoke than this shit. Your mouth tastes like perfume after u smoke it. Super dank shit though. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Jorge! That method serves to wash remains of neem and potassium soap applied in flowering phase? Or I already spoiled the buds. Help please!!!

Thank you for all your information and taking the time to share your wisdom with the growing community. And thank you for not starting your videos by taking a giant bong rip or a monster size dab. I like videos to be serious and helpful. I don't like wasting my time watching someone get high. We see that everyday anyway.

If your bud is covered in mildew just throw it away, for fuck sake… like anyone wants to smoke bud after it's been washed… So desperate to get high .

Hay Master Gardener here. For live plants, put same solution in a squirt bottle. It may take more than one round. Drying an consistent air flow is key. Immediately remove plants with mildew to a seperate area if you cannot get to it because in 2-3 days those spurs are flying and your entire set up is jeopardized.

Please Like this for others to see. There Is FOOD GRADE h202 35% that is NOT Stabilized, They stabilize this 3% Solution with heavy metals, I would use Food grade 35% from pure health discounts. Also never add h202 with chlorine water, it interacts and makes a deadly gas, use better water. Also when its not stabilized (The 35% is not ) It can clean better !

Really appreciate the great info. Thank you for sharing. Can this type of cleansing bath be used for mould or is this specifically for powder mildew only? I’m still learning and curious If small patches of mould on several bud sites are discovered, can it be salvaged or not?

Do not do this. If any sulfur, or phosphorous is in/on your plant it will isomerize, dehydrate, etc etc you cannabinoids.

hi, I was wondering if you recommend applying hydrogen peroxide only in case of mold, or just to prevent it, or even to disinfect and clean the crop anyway? even if the flowers have no problems, or risk having dusty mold. Thanks in advance. kind regards

Aug 8, 2019, 4:21 pm Reply

wouldn't it be better to trim before the peroxide bath? there would be less to dry, leaving more exposure to the buds for both the peroxide and the air from drying, so less chance of mold afterwards?

Dear amigo, PLEASE HELP. Im a noob and I had some problems with white flies so i spray the plant with potasium soap, they told me on the growshop to do it even with buds on it, so I did it 10 days ago.The plant will be ready to cut in 15 days aprox. The main problem its the smell of the potasium soap wont go, Do you think this process will help the plant to get out the smell? Had you ever hear or experience a similar thing with the potasium soap?Gracias

Can you spray this solution on your plant while it is still in the ground and use a garden hose to gently rinse ? Looks like a bit of PM and some rusty looking leaves . I’m pretty close to harvest I think . New grower here .

Does this work on buds that’s got alittle mold in the inside of the buds? Had them in a jar too early and they began to start molding SMH .. sorry if bad English

I had a plant that grew great covered in trichomes when in flowering smelt strong but with a really strong musty smell to it not the fruity smell I'm always used to, when I chopped and cured this think it had a great high to it but the taste was shit that hay taste I just could not get it to cure. Now thinking back how thick that thing was covered could it have been some sort of mildew and if so would that be the reason I could just get no taste at all or would it affect the high to. I know people would say I didn't cure it right but I have done many a grow and this was the first time this has ever happened. I noticed no mildew spots on leaves but the buds where just covered and sugar leaves looked like snow in places….

Hi Jorge I have your book and it has proven to be very useful thank you. I’ve been treating my plants with some organic anti fungi spray and it has kept the PM under control relatively however I am harvesting in a couple weeks and wondered if I have to do a bath if there is no signs of PM on my buds only some leaves which have been defoliated now basically my question is if my buds look ok do I still need the peroxide bath??

Question for you. Would this sort of bath or maybe just a the rinse, help remove any residue from something like DefGuard from GH? I am thinking of spraying my buds which are in to their 4th week of flower with 4-5 weeks to go. I had some mold last grow (indoor grows) and want to be a little proactive. All the info I see says not to spray anything in flower stage. The product says you can use it up to harvest, but of course they are not referring to something you smoke. I would appreciate your thoughts on this if you don't mind.
