Hey there, my California Dream girls are in the last several weeks of doing their thing. But there are a few things that concern me.
One is that there are a few very light areas on the buds, near the tips. Only on the most central buds and only on 3 or 4 of them. The pics don’t totally show it but on the pics showing the whole bud, the very tip of the bud is very light, almost white.
My light is an HLG 260rspec. It’s about a foot higher than the canopy and I’ve got it dialed back so that the very brightest lux reading I’ve gotten now is 40,000 lux. I’ve considered reducing the daylight duration down to 11 hours but wasn’t sure if I should. I had the light at 55,000 lux but the problem was seemingly increasing. There are two fans blowing slowly over top of the canopy and my humidity is roughly 48-52% right now. Temperature at the canopy is 72 at night at 82 during the day respectively. Exhaust fan going around the clock.
Could they be super sensitive to having over 40,000 lux? The buds that are outside of the brightest area have never received over 45,000 lux and seem to be the happiest.
From the pics am I in trouble with anything?
I don’t see much in the way of cloudy trichomes so I think I’ve got about 3 weeks or so but maybe I’m wrong. Help from this knowledge base would be incredibly helpful.
