So this is my ILGM Zkittlez auto. She is 10 weeks old, and has been flowering for 6 weeks.
I check her every day, and today I saw that the tip of the cola appears to be bleached, and the plant matter at the top of the cola has changed from hairs and glands to something different. I’ve heard of foxtailing on this site, and checked some pics and I’m pretty sure that’s what I have.
I’m sure I’ve done this to the plant unintentionally by keeping the light too close. I raised it a bit ago, but as you can see the main cola keeps reaching up, but there are so many buds on the lower branches I didn’t want to move the light too far from them. For my next round of plants I am LSTing one, and multiple topping the other to see which works better and to keep the buds at a fairly uniform level from the lights, but I still need to get through my first grow with the first 2 plants growing in a fairly natural pattern.
Here is the entire plant today
This is the cola
Here is the tip which appears to be foxtailing
So I don’t know what to do. Some of the buds look like they are getting close
And other buds look like they are a long way off - I have 2 of these similarly structured and behind most of the other shoots. These are coming from the very bottom, and are structured like colas, with a few buds growing off them below the main cola.
advice is appreciated
