Red Hairs too early, No Trichomes!??

    I have plants maturing in week 5 (3 weeks early) and they have no trichomes what so ever.:cuss::cuss::cuss::cuss::cuss::cuss: I grew these strains before and they were caked at week 5 with crystals. I also have no scent this time either. I'm growing a Chemdog, Super Skunk cross and Dutch Passion Blueberry. Both should stink up the house but the grow room doesnt even smell at all, I could bring a blind man in there and he wouldn't have a clue there was cannabis in the same room. Even if I squeeze a bud and stick the plant half way up my nose I cant smell them. When they were vegging they stunk ten times worse than now.

    I seriously overfed with Calmag a few weeks ago, but since then i did a res change. They never seemed to recover from that. I clipped off a bud that had all its hairs turned red and I smoked it and it had no THC at all or Blueberry flavor like it should.
    What deficiency could cause this? I hear Phosphorus def could, but if I had a P def, I don't think my plants would be having this many red hairs yet. Im so mad, I wasted so much time and money I want to cry:confused::confused:.
    If I can solve this tho, I still may have a few weeks to pack on the crystals.

    Turns out I was using way too much Ca and the plants were rushing to finish up. They are still growing, I lost a lot of weight this go round but I learned a very important nutrient lesson and I believe my next grow will be much much better.
