Hi! I am a new grower. This is only my second grow. I am kind of confused though and am hoping someone with more experience could give me a little guidance. I have two blueberry autos that I germinated from seed at the same time, but they have grown completely differently. I know this happens sometimes with one being a runt or stringy or something, but these are quite different.
As you can see, one looks much further along than the other, it also is much smaller, and a majority of the fan leaves are only 3 fingered. The smaller one also started forming trichomes much earlier, and is packed all over with trichomes, even the underside of the stems and leaves. Strangely though, the smaller one that seems further along seems like the trichomes are actually less milky the the bigger one.
The big one did undergo major stress right at the beginning of the flowering stage when the top 3 nodes broke of during, apparently not low enough, stress training. It’s trichomes seem to be mostly milky despite the plant overall looking like it still has a way to go(very green still and mostly white hairs).
My questions are twofold:
Are these trichomes clear or milky?
Why is there such a huge difference between the two plants, is there any way to tell?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Here is a little about my grow
