2nd grow of auto blueberry and both grows I end up harvesting in parts. Some buds are very close while some have weeks left. Grown in scrog and a little supercrop till flower then I just let her do her thing Here is a few picks. You can see how ripe some are and the others have a ways to go.
u need a pocket microscope and look at the trichomes,
the pistols can darken for other reasons then maturing, like heat/light stress and/or nute issues.
Tricombs are cloudy on some. Still clear on most.
@Painfree beautiful looking plants! The colors just mean she’s getting a little closer to harvest.
she looks over-fed and/or some root problems and maybe a little heat/light stress,
the red looks like boron def. which is a sign of over-feeding,
there is plenty of Boron in the ‘soil’ but it is locked out.
root problems can cause parts of the same plant to act different,
too much fert’s can cause this from salt build up,
pH swing can also cause root issues, salt build up can cause pH swings.!
Ive never seen a plant with such a huge discrepancy between the ripening of the buds even those that have main colas a foot above the rest. If I were to pick a culprit in this case , I’d say it’s the canopy that’s not even and the light distance from the lower buds or its two diff plants ? I see no evidence of over feeding and the majority of leaves are virgin like no burn at all and the top leaves are expected to brown or colorize in some way the closer to harvest you get The ripest buds are way above the others but still I’ve never seen that much diff between top and lower buds in ripening. Beautiful buds bro.
@SlowOldGuy I don’t see any nutrient burn on the leaf tips, and I see no signs of light stress. All of the leaves look very healthy.
Cannabis often changes color towards the end of its life, genetics, nutrients, or cooler temperatures.
There’s only the one plant in there?
2 plants but parts of both are almost ready. Never fed over 1000 ppm and run off stays at 3-400 the whole grow. No big deal harvesting as they get ready. Just wish I could do it all at once to make drying easier.
Awesome @Painfree those are great runoff numbers.
Next time try to cut out the bottom third of growth and keep your canopy as even as possible and you should be able to harvest all at once.
Just random thought, but wondering if maybe you didn’t just damage some parts of the plant more than others with the supercropping?
sorry guys, i scroll through the pics and see burnt tips, but when i zoom in the lower fans look normal.
i m old and on an older laptop, y’all should not expect much from me.!! lol
i still say it is a root problem.!!
plants should grow and finish fairly uniform, when random parts of a plant act different from the rest it is usually root problems of some sort.!
Those are some beuatiful colours on them plants @SlowOldGuy Very nice!!!
My guess is roots. They have been very healthy the whole grow but it was an experiment on 2 plants in a 5 gallon fabric pot. By now I am sure it’s getting crowded in there. All in all it worked out.
Experiments with more than one plant in the same container never ends well. @Painfree
Don’t say never. Going to get a good amount of bud off this grow compaired to a single plant I have growing next to them.
@Painfree I hate to point out the obvious, but had you planted it in it’s own container, I would be willing to bet you could have gotten an AWESOME amount of bud instead of just “good”.
Phenotype and genotypes can play a major roll in how many and how much flowers are produced. So even the same strain, two different seeds can have drastically different results.
I understand it was an experiment and I’m willing to accept that as it is. Happy growing.
Agree with covertgrower. Two plants as I suspected in an aforementioned post is never good for the same container. Been there Done that ! More than once and it doesn’t end well lol. Besides crop the top and let the rest mature no biggy
