How to get buds to show more crystals?

    I was disappointed in a couple of my plants for not showing as many crystals as I thought they should.

    There were plenty of trichs to look at when viewing with a scope or loup, so they had crystals. But, one of my Northern Lights was advertised as loaded with crystals, but I didn't see any unless I looked real close.

    Would wind from a fan blowing directly on the plant, upset crystal production? Any other things I can do for next time?

    Just had my first harvest and got 10 oz dry from four plants. The Lemon Skunk I grew had the most visible crystals, and is my most potent smoke.

    What nuts did you use? the last couple weeks of flower I water with GH flora nova bloom and GH Koolbloom. The koolbloom is off the charts.

    use a pk booster around week 5 of flower. using a fan for airflow is a must. but it doesn't need to be hurricane force wind, just a gentle breeze.

    I used the Fox Farm triple pack and the additional 3 supplements. Molasses was added in the second month. Not sure if that helped or not. I think I'll skip the molasses in my next grow.

    My electric fans wouldn't blow a hurricane, but I did need to circulate the air around four plants, so some of the parts of the plant would get more wind then others. I was always rotating the plants positions.

    Some of you guys get the most crystally, frosty buds I have ever seen. That's what I'm talkin' about. I'm thinking about a White Widow and some Kush's on my next grow. I wish I could've gotten the Purple Kush seeds, but seems to be clone only. That was my favorite a couple years back.
