    Default Answered: Quick question regarding buds

    Hi guys, I've not been on in a while as it's been hectic around here. I still managed to keep my girls going & I'm now at 8 weeks flower. I've not had any major problems, just a couple of wee things here and there but with help from you guys I managed to fix them. What I'm having trouble with just now and need help with is just with one of my girls, it's a different strain from the rest(sunshine sherbet) and it's the one causing me the most aggro. I've noticed my buds on this plant are all misshaped and they haven't darkened like the others and I don't know if it's a bit of light damage from a small light on my plug extension, the light was directly above this plant. I didn't notice the extension had a light on it when I put it on at 2weeks into flowering until roughly 2 weeks later. I'm not sure if this is what the problem is hence why I'm asking you guys (best asking the pros). As I said my other 4 girls are thriving, I'm actually about to start flushing them, it's just this one I'm having issues with.
    I've attached photos.

    All advice welcomed

    Get your self a 60x or 90x Lope and have A look at your tircks. If they look like this, you are about A week away from flush.

    Foxtails are made of several calyxes stacked on top of each other instead of growing in the uniform buds we know, and you can have the so called 'good' and 'bad' foxtails..
    The good foxtails are caused by genetics while the bad foxtails are caused by light/heat stress

    It doesn't seem to be maturing and it's 8 weeks into flower. All my other girls are doing great(different strains), it's just this one causing issues. Any suggestions?

    i presume you only have some foxtailing on the top where the light was to close...the rest of the buds on the plant are all fine ?

    if that is the case i would keep an eye on those buds and harvest when they are ready, also you can harvest in stages offcourse

    But this is a personal opinion...so dont pin me down on anything lol

    I trim off foxtailing when I harvest and go by trich shots taken from buds further down. The foxtails developed later so weren't ripe, but buds under (once trimmed) were ready

    She can change her name here:

    Or drop the mods a line to have that amended.

    P.S. The purple on the Gorilla looks FAB!!
    Fight for your health.
    Hug those who care about you, do all you can for those you love (if they want it). We just never know when it might be the last time we talk to them or see them.
