No THC No crystals week 5

I have good budd growth so far but my budds have no smell no crystals, mystery strain. 2 seeds from what was a nice bag we purchased. I have used all the required P K enhances with no change.

any tips would be great I’m running out of time for this process to happen. Disregard the middle pic its on the plant which still lacks it but not as bad.

Week 5 and beyond is when they start putting on buds and trichomes. Give it some time. By week 7 they should be smelling and getting frosty.

I really hope you are correct because I’ve never seen bud this size with no smell or stickyness it really is odd

Can i ask what strain that is

@Digzy Yea some strains are just late sugar producers, it depends on the chemical reactions happening inside your girl. She may just be not producing carbs yet which are how trichomes are created. Give it another week or two :slight_smile: She looks like she has A LOT of hair development, so like a 10 to 12 week strain :slight_smile:

Hi there i have an update. Still no smell & very little crystal. And now the bud leaves are looking weird & are turning rounded. Thoughts?

@Digzy try adding some molasses and liquid kelp to your feedings. Always works for me to give a boost. What strain are you growing though? Also, have you used anything synthetic with PGRs in it? The only time I have ever seen buds that big and hairy with no frost is when people use synthetic PGRs.

Sry i did mention several times mystery strain 2 seeds from a quality bag purchased. Definitely no pgr used . I really don’t understand it … but i will be considering the molasses & kelp im out of ideas…

@Digzy it appears to have sativa growth patterns so you’re still good. Some sativa strains flower for 12 up to 16 weeks and don’t start getting frosty until the last 4 weeks or so so there’s still plenty of time.

The molasses and liquid kelp will definitely help though. Plenty of natural pgrs, auxins, sugars, and micros that cannabis needs to get frosty.

I’m still learning plant physiology after spending the first half of my life in human physiology, but count me in for a vote that she’s putting all her energy into some really kick ass bud. Otherwise, changes in structure lead me to believe there’s some hormone changes happening. That could be a good thing? I’m sure you don’t want to, but have you found a piece of bud you can cut off to try? At least to look at up close?
