Welcome to ILGM forum. You are only 7 weeks, she has a ways to go. I just grew some NL autos that took a while to start frosting up. Your patience will be rewarded.

I’ve only done a handful of grows myself, but maybe you should check the P & K content of those nutes with a testing kit? Could be that the plant is having to burn all her energy just to grow pistils and calyxes but doesn’t have enough to produce trichomes. Also…what is your current lighting schedule? If it’s an auto, you are severely shorting your potential quality and yield if you give them any less than 18 hours light. Just my experience, but I would ask someone with more experience before acting on anything.

Yeah lighting schedule 18 on 6 off since seed dont know how to check the levels on that one I may just buy more nutes and molasses and try that

I’m having the same problem. No trichomes. With other grows, I usually see trichomes on the buds at least at this stage of flower.

@Cj1511 looks like signs of nute burn on some of those first pics (burnt, crispy tips & leaves starting to curl up at ends). Might want to contact one of the walking grow bots here such as @Covertgrower or @dbrn32 because they have FAR more knowledge than I do. For now, I would only water when needed, and I would cut nutes out completely until I discussed the issue with one of them. If they aren’t sure, they can put you in touch with someone who may be able to help, most likely. Here’s hoping for the best! :pray:t3:

Welcome to the forum community! @BipolarPanda a lot of times they don’t pack on trichomes until a little farther along into flower.

@Cj1511 Just curious… is that a hair in pic 4? Looks WAY too long and thin to be a pistil

Id assume its a hair as far as what im doing now at 8 weeks 3 days im ceasing all nutes and just going to flush at week 9 or in 4 days and probably run it to week 11-12 if nothing then I’ll sadly harvest as plant seems to be dying ive had to take off a bunch of leaves due to yellowing/dying and its still happening so yeah

@BipolarPanda yeah I’ve tried molasses and a light increase helped with the smell thing not so much on the trichomes however I’ve been reading about uvb lights apparently it can be used to induce trichome production/stress them in the right way so they produce more trichomes havent tried it or experimented but lots of info about it online

@Cj1511can you see any of the roots anywhere? Just wondering if there might be any rot or other root issues? Looks similar to a plant my buddy had go bad due to rot in mid-late flower years ago
