    Default Will it hurt a catt bud?

    I have a catt peckhariensis in bud and I'd like to bring it in so I can enjoy it and not just give the bugs a snack. Needless to say, I want to leave all the bugs OUT and I have malathion concentrate. Will this hurt the bud? It's the first time I've flowered this one and I'm verrrrry excited!

    I'll send a picture

    I would not spray buds with any pesticide. There is at least a good chance of damaging them. If you want to spray the plant itself with malathion, and leave it outside for a few days to air out, that's probably fine. Use a cotton puff soaked in rubbing alcohol to wipe the spike and any buggers on the buds.
