    I have the same question. As it looks like probly a third of or even less of the buds on the plant have orange/red/brown hairs or mabey there burnt. Not Sure because not all of them are that way. I'm talking about the buds on one plant. Is that what your seeing?

    lol, he said light burn. this is an easy one, if the bud leaves(especially the tips) are dry/crispy/wilting its from heat. the hairs change as the flowers mature, all the turning orange means is the oldest/older pistils are dying naturally, the hair color is really irrelevent in truth though, you should judge your plants flowering development and maturity and when to harvest from the trichomes, not the pistils.

    Nutes especially if sprayed from a foliar( even at low doses) can show up in the so-called hairs/trychs. Usually this would be light over exposure, if it is not plant maturation, but at 3 weeks, I would agree it is a bit early to see amber hairs all over the plant. Heat, heavy amounts of potassium or chitosites, a foliar spray that is heavy in potasium or extreme air movement(wind burn) could all cause this.

    Most likely though, if you are past 6 weeks in the flowering stage, it is just maturation of the plant.
