    White cotton looking substance in bud

    My friend just found a white cotton substance in a few places on his main colas.

    He cut it down right away, since it was coming down in a few days anyway.

    Its not all over the buds, in about 2 different places, looks like he caught it in time before it spread.

    It was only on the two top main colas, nowhere else. What would kill off the mold spors so that it could save the top colas, also can he just cut out the white parts on the buds and save the rest of the plant?

    Also on further inspection, at the center of each cotton like place found on the plant, as one of the tiny little nat flies stuck in it. It would appear as if they go stuck in the plant and died, and than the fungus started growing from their dead bodies.

    Mate.. I HOPE NOT... But you may have Spider mites.. They weave webs around your buds and plant and eat your plants!! NOT GOOD!!
    Check under the leaves, you may need a microscope but theyre kinda clear/black and leaves small black poo deposits on the leaves.
    Some signs are patches on the leaves where theyre feeding..
    Hope this is not the case, but check it out carefully... Later mate. Smokemup

    Its either spider mites or mold from the sounds of it.

    Both are bad bad news.
