Flowering Issues

Hi guys, i’d really appreciate any help you could give on a problem that’s bugging me, Right now I am at the end of week two of the bloom, “Northern Lights”, right before the flip they were smelling beautiful, I was chuffed but over the course of seven days the wonderful aroma started to diminish till it was gone completely. I have discovered quite a substantial and constant light leak during the dark period which has now been put right and I am wondering if this could be the cause. Every other factor, temp, humidity and ph is close to perfect. I’d love to get to the bottom of this as it’s driving me nuts. Should I scrap it?
Thanks in advance Radman 13

Hey @radman13 here are some folks that can help but as they will sugggest, is for you to fill out a support ticket and then post any pictures that you can to show your plant if possible unless it’s just a smell issue.

I believe @raustin @MattyBear @GreenThunder @Myfriendis410 @Redeyedranger @dbrn32 @garrigan62 @Donaldj may be able to help.

I also grow NL. Don’t worry about the smell somedays mine will knock you over and others I don’t know they are there. Now that the light leak is fixed you should be okay. Also, the first 2 weeks they transition so you may not notice too much. They will start stretching and bright green growth starts on the tops of budsites.


Give it time. You ain’t smelled nothing yet haha! Just wait until you are 8 weeks into flower and you can share it with THE ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD HAHAHA!


Totally normal


Perfectly normal. I’ve had some that smell like a skunk during veg but when flowering, smell changed to a very sweet smell that could only be detected if it was a few inches under your nose!


Yup. They will stink every bit they did and then some before too long.

thanks to all for taking the time to help, I hope you’re right, I miss the stink. post later hopefully with good news.
