I don`t like opening whole new topic for this but oh well...
If anyone is clear about what this is then please let me know :)

Is this a damn mold or not? It appeared on some leaves after curing. Previously i threw away any leaf having any of those green colors and dried well rest of product, this time i made sure to have less humidity and checking it more often but still some leaves have this. It is NOT fluffy, with tiny hairs and similar characteristics that mold i usually knew had. It`s just green color in leaf in tone suspiciously similar to chlorophyll which can not be rubbed off.

Should i again throw those away and adjust environment next time even more or not?
Not very well pic but oh well`... :shock:
Thanks :)

I am no expert, however, if it's mold, it will likely get worse. If it's chlorophyll it will likely go away?
Seem reasonable to anyone else?

That has to be THE biggest picture I have seen posted here. Besides mine, That said, I have never witnessed That kind of white mold. As a chemist you may want to take some petre samples. Even an alert.

hi
I opened the picture in separate page. Did not look like mold to me. looked like ti cured good except next to heavy veins. i would just put it in a separate box mark date type and what it looks like on box and store it 3-6 months then look again then cut a little and try it as smoke . If it was mold you would see it all over then and would not try it I'll bet after aging it is good smoke.
