Here’s a bit of an odd one in my indoor grow room. I grew some autos, my fourth or fifth grow. My autos grow slow in my cold basement, so they’re about four months to finish. First plants were pretty typical…one plant is behaving strangely.
Jack Herer Autos, 4+ months in, fox farms soil and nutes.
As the plants were finishing up I stipped off foliage leaves.
As this plant was kind of light on trichomes compared to others, I split the stem.
a week later I harvested four, pretty normal, but my split plant now has lots of trichomes, I let it go.
two weeks later this wierd plant has lots of trichomes, 80%milky, 20% clear, but they refuse to ripen, or turn amber.
Now it’s flowering again! my previously conical shaped colas, with brown pistles and a sugary look, now have flowers coming out all over, pistles are appearing. the trichomes turn milky pretty quickly but they do not seem to ever turn amber. I’d be content to harvest but it seems to be flowering pretty good again.
Is there a way to shut this plant off and force the trichomes to ripen fully?
