Like the Others say , its Humidity. To avoid it like this: Always good air-circulation... using ventilators, let the tent open if light is on, water more often but very less, avoid runoff, The bigger the plant gets.... the more the Plant transpirants. Rising the temperature, helps to reduce the RH. In middle and late Flowering stage try to reach rh under 50 percent. Ok happy growing

Mostly by humidity so keep a RH around 40% and a fan blowing around. A fungus can also do that but in that case you can just make edibles/extracts with the buds :yum:

Bad airflow and high humidity lead to mold/bud-rot. Air Extractor + Rotating Fans + Dehumidifier = no problem! I'm currently growing a big ball of buds (see my THC bomb diary) and was afraid of this, but with continuously controlled parameters and a good airflow everything is fine, despite the lack of space/air between the stems. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Humidity is the number 1 cause but you also gotta make sure the buds aren't resting on each other or the walls of your grow space and that there is plenty of airflow.

The biggest factor is humidity. Keep the humidity low and make sure you have a good air calcuation :+1:
