Bud growth question

This was March 13th. So call it 4.5/5-weeks?
Edit: accidentally put two pics, the larger was March 15th.

A little light on the lights. You still have 6-7 weeks and they will fill out more. The buds further than 18 - 24 inches from the light probably won’t amount to much.

I should clarify, more than 18 - 24 inches from the light includes any light. The further away the light is, that bud receives less PPFD and lower DLI so it will not do as well as those receiving higher PPFD

About day 26, got a good FF trio feeding today after letting them get ever so slightly wilted on the lower leaves, read that’s a good way to get nutrient uptake. Trichomes starting to come in better now over last few days, and she’s not stretching anymore thank god. Hoping the buds will fill in and fatten up.

Day 28, slowly fattening up, this ILGM auto completely fills my 3x3 tent, wall-to-wall, and 52” tall.
She got a water today with molasses and King Crab. Now the patience game for another 5-6 weeks.

Plant #2, definitely experimenting with this one. No room in the tent, so she’s outside, and I topped her after my puppy bent her over and broke her main stem low at a 90-degree angle. She sprouted on April 15thish. She’s nowhere near the size of my tented girl at the same age, curious if she puts out fatter buds.



For comparison, here is one month from sprout on plant 1 vs plant 2.

Day 37+/-, now wishing I had scrog this, the buds are fattening up and weight is making her bend over into the tent walls. She is getting sticky and stinky, have tied up a few branches that were leaning over the most. Frost is building in, one thing this noob was really worried about.

Starting to really put out that heavenly scent. I was super worried these were small and wouldn’t fatten up, guess that is par for the course your first time.

Looking great!
This hobby will teach you great patience.

Definitely the most difficult aspect of growing. The learning curve is the best.

Day 47, little over a week or so left!!

Chopped at day 65 of flower. The interesting thing was all the hollow stems. Is this common or rare?





Love this site! Seems hollow stems come from carbon deficiency during rapid growth. Would guess being in a tent and growing into a big girl so fast found her CO2 deficient. Will be interesting to see how the girl outside looks at harvest, not in a tented space.

Tell me all you know about hollow stems and branches - #16 by RandomlyRan
