Color loss is this normal

What’s up everyone? I have 2 auto blueberry going in soil and when they started flowering they had this nice pink/purple look . Now it’s late in flower it seems as if they are losing the color. Is this normal?

Yeah it’s getting close , the last push and if it’s cold changes can also promote fall coloration in budding flowers which is a sign to the plant roots winter is coming and she needs to produce big to pollinate or bud !

Looks like you have a few weeks judging by the white hairs. The bright yellow may indicate a nitrogen deficiency. What’s your feed schedule like? Using calmag every water between feeds?

Calmag is our buddy…:grin:

Good Morning. I would suggest some some Epsom in your water. That’s a nice bud right there. :blush::v:

That is pretty color. Should see a big change soon. Even indoor my girls feel the weather change. Getting some great purple myself.

I would not feed it nothing but good plain ph water , make sure you keeping track of the soil ph so she can finish strong , :muscle: by week 4 in full flower , once the pre-flower starts , that feeding should last 10 days which should carry them in mid week of week 6 right , that’s most likely when the flush starts , so if you stop feeding in week 4 your final bud will smoke better , taste better , and finish and look better , and if you water them normally in those two weeks will count as a flush :flushed: without you having to actually flush , but I grow hundreds of plants 🪴, I think it’s 348 clones in the veg room that needs trimming soon , plus another 52 seedlings :seedling: that’s rooting in cloners.
She is looking mighty fine and happy !

I feed Bergman nutrients according to the feeding chart, 1 teaspoon flower time fertilizer per gallon a week. I actually have not used Cal Meg in between feeds… :thinking:

I appreciate it!!! It smells amazing as well!

I appreciate the information! So should I go ahead and lay off of the feeding now and just give it plain water? Should I also use a distilled water towards the end?

Very nice , how many weeks on your autos ?

What the plant says , not what any of us says , the plants can tell you more than any of us can , this is where patience and experience and ah wittle wisdom comes into to play right ?
Just look at them , they are super happy , don’t change it or over do it , if you started you flower time from the first light flip , your count can be off by 14 days , be careful there ? The first two weeks is nor consider actual flowering time , that’s when the rootzone transitions from one stage of growth to the final phase of buying, complete two different aspects , so it’s transitional time to re-adjust the nutrient feeding and ph and ppm ratio for the next phase , to start the flowering phase which normally starts right about 21 days after the actual light flip? Does any of that makes sense to you , I’m asking :thinking:? Now after those 3 weeks, your plants will flower the next 5 weeks , and some hybrids and sativa strains can run up to 9 or 11 weeks , autos can o months before finishing , it all depends on light intensity , air quality , Co2 , ph consistency and ppm consistency and most important of all good water :droplet:, in the right N.P.K ratio and you’ll win every time , research , research , read :books:, study , learn as much you can and used advice as a mentor , not a to do list , it’s just someone’s thoughts that can be similar but different , it’s no one way to grow a plant and it changes everytime you wake up , each time they come back from Space , the Virus gets Worse , stay Woke and be proactive and think it out , how would you eat , is how you feed your babies ladies , just enough but not to much !
I believe in you , you can and will learn this art :art: trust me !

Thinking back I think about 12 weeks is the quickest that I have finished a auto. Strains do vary a little in Finish time.

Yeah this one is at nine weeks. I think another week or so and they should be done! This strain really grew fast! I had some WW and they took a little longer. I have a Bruce Banner auto going and it is not as fast as the blueberry

I had a runt finish at almost 10 weeks exactly from seed. Not ILGM, though. It was about 12 for the GSCE autos last summer outside.

That’s pretty fast! How did they turn out? I’m thinking about 12 weeks for these blueberries maybe 11 I’m not sure

The runt wasn’t ILGM, PoisonBerry, but she was ok. Smelled great just not what I’d hoped. I harvested my first GSCE early and it was still pretty good. The second, my dear lord. Munchies like nobodies business and stuck like chuck. I lost almost a half from bagging it too early, but overall the quality of the smoke was great.
