Is the what “Fox Tail” looks like?

Not sure what happened to her. Clearly nutrient related, leaves dried out a couple weeks ago. Past day 106, thinking she may be done maturing. Trichomes are clear and have shown no signs of changing in the past two weeks. She may be gone but not sure.


Yuuuup. That’s a lot of foxtailing. Are you looking at trichomes on the foxtails, or deeper in the flowers? The foxtails will be less developed, but that girl looks all around ready.


Yes but it doesn’t hurt a thing especially if you see them a few weeks before harvest and they have time to ripen


Thanks Lewy

Thanks mate.

Why do you say nutrition?

I thought foxtailing can be caused either by genetics or by stress.

If you’re growing outdoors, any foxtailing is almost always due to genetics. Some strains of cannabis are simply more prone to developing foxtails.

Indoors, however, foxtailing can be caused by light stress during the flowering phase. In this case, plants start developing foxtails in parts of the flowers that are too close to the light source for too long.

Genetics or excessive light exposure. The plants are continuing to produce buds and stack and stack and stack because the light intensity is too high. Most growers will crank the lights way up for early-to-mid flower and then dial it back to DLI from 50 to 35-40 in late flower while the plant matures and finishes.

No those are bracts. Foxtails are pistils shaped in the form of a fox tail that don’t finish with the plant. You’ll have done buds with white hairs coming out of the top

Day 98 started in green house got it inside in tent with mats hydro 2000 half way through. Foxtailing? New growth all around main Kola. Wait more time or just chop since I already started flush.


First bean ever dropped so all advice is appreciated had to add the stick for support she was starting to bend. She is either a Gsc extreme or Gorilla lost my label :tired_face:. In a 7 gallon ocean farm medium. I know I removed a lot of leaves got carried away pulling the yellowing and dried leaves. She went through a lot from transitioning to green house to tent which started with high temps before I got my second AC infinity.

OP sorry didn’t find where to make new post. looks like same prob so posted.

Welcome to the community ! yes , that would be a good example of Fox tailing. Finish the plant out.

What are fox tails? I didn’t quite understand.

Fox tails are the emergence of fresh white pistils from the top of the bud even after the majority of the bud has matured. It will often create a shape that looks like a fox tail - fat and full at the lowest part and tapering upward to a narrow skinny point of fresh bud/pistils at the top.

This bud fox tailed pretty heavily - look at the bottom of the photo (top of the plant) and you’ll see weird almost cone shaped kinds buds.

Excuse my ignorance, but I think I understand what the fox tail would be, is this part of the plant marked with a red circle? Thanks a lot for the help

Exactly right.

Here’s a picture of a plant “foxtailing” - she was actively shooting out those new pistils all over the plant - aka genetic foxtailing. It’s less distinct of a shape because her buds ended up sad and airy, but it’s a good example for what to keep an eye on while it’s still growing

If I had let her live past that stage, it would have become a much more pronounced foxtail shape. Unfortunately she threw nanners so I axed her
