My buds aren’t dense at all! Could it be the container, maybe the sun exposure-not enough. What wrong and how can I correct this for my next grow. I am a beginner! I even think it’s going late into the harvesting period
Welcome to the forum @Growingforfun.
We will need more info such as strain, grow time, grow method etc. Pics would be very helpful.
Are you using CO2?
Also are you adding growth regulators like the Pro do?
I am on my first Grow, so I’m no one to ask, but…
Two weeks ago when my flowers began to appear, I added a Taste (about 1/4 dose) of Bloom Booster. Then, about one week ago, I began watering them with a weak mix of Molasses (2 teaspoons/gal). My upper buds have fattened & gained weight considerably…the lower buds are still just airy Foxtails. I’m going to harvest the thickest cola today, as it’s up against the lights (and I cannot move them any higher). I am hoping not to shock the plant too much, and hoping that the increased Light (plus additional Feed) will fatten up the remaining buds. I now have a Jeweler’s Loupe (el cheapo) and will check the pistils/trichomes before doing so. It could be, that the shriveling and Brown/Red color of the top pistils is Light Burn…I don’t know. Here’s a pic from 2 days ago. Will post an update in a few days. Anyway, this is where I’m at.
(one hour later) I harvested ONE cluster of buds only. They were up against the lights anyway. Examined them thoroughly, using 60x magnifier: Trichomes cloudy, pistils about 1/2 white & 1/2 reddish/brown & shriveled, all the way down (about 8 inches’ worth), so probably not light burn. My first harvest! Buds are much fatter than in the above pic, and holding them in my hand, they have some Heft. Amazing, what a difference a couple of days can make. Now the mid-and-lower buds can get plenty of light. They are all Sticky with resin, but the trichomes are still Clear and the pistils are still white. Will know in a month or so, how Good or Awful it is.
