What do you all think about these spots. They are drying in the garage in 70-85 degrees with about 60-70 percent humidity. This is my first year growing and seeing these patterns on the leaf is making me feel a little concerned because I have a lot more waiting to come down and if the garage isnt going to cure it properly I dont know what I will do. Thanks guys20200901_235421.jpg20200901_235404.jpg20200901_235222.jpg20200901_235210.jpg20200901_235305.jpg20200901_235235.jpg20200901_235338.jpg20200901_235348.jpg

I can't see any mold in these photos.

You could have an oscillating fan which blows the leaves around a bit to ensure there's no wet spots trapped between leaves.

thanks for looking. I do keep a fan in there 24 hours a day. If no mold, do you have any idea what would cause the spots of discoloration?

Several of them look like they are from the bottom of the plant. These leaves usually look bruised and battered because they are subject to more physical trauma and because they are thinner, as well as because whatever biology they got going on.

Moreover, leaves don't turn colour gradually like a dimmer switch. It's spotty.
