The key to super dense buds?

    So im wondering what the key is to getting really hard dense buds. At the moment im flowering 5 medium sized plants and 4 that flowered pretty much straight from clone(maybe 2 weeks veg). They are all the same unknown strain that ive grown before expcept for one, but the small ones have rock hard buds and have way more crystals but the larger ones have quite loose buds in comparison. Most of the buds that ive harvested havnt been very dense. Anyone know why this is or what to do get dense buds?



    The one on the far left is the different strain which was supposedly Hindu Kush but i dont think it is(I dont actually have a clue)(and i know it looks shit). The rest are all the same.

    I can't really tell how far away things, I don't know if its me or if the picture is distorted.

    Keep the temps in the 70's. If it gets too hot it will lead to light airy buds.

    Its because the shorter plants are indica dominant... characteristics of indicas include short stocky plants and super dense fat nugs. Your taller plants are Sativa dominant and sativas have lighter nugs than indicas. They also take longer to flower but have a more euphric uplifting head high and the couchlock indica. Thats why your sativas have thinner nugs... a possible reason for the sativas looking less crystally is just that the buds are not as developed as your indica nugs because their flowering cycle lasts over 10 weeks and your indicas probably less than that...so dont worry they still got time to fill out alot :) cheers

    Sorry, the photo was taken with a fish eye lens. The light is actually close as fuck. I cant get it any closer without getting too hot. It just looks fucked cos of the lens. Also the temps have been perfect, never over 26*C. And the plants are clones of the same plant, so they are all indica (except for the one on the left). So it must be somthing else. I hope that makes sense. Im fuckin blazed

    Room temps & light are the 2 biggest factors weather the finished buds will be loose or dense,get the room tems under 80 degrees,preferably around 75 degrees & give them more light,either adjust your present lights or add more lights.

    You are making sense.. its not a light distance problem if your short plants further from the light are filling out nicely and your tall plants are even closer to the light then how could the light be too far away for the tall plants to develop well but its plenty for the short plants being further away? Maybe it gets a little to hot at the top of your room and that could be why your tallest plant is wilting a little... but i dont think thats your problem... just read my last post again :) i think your doing great

    Ya i say if anything make sure your temp at the top closest to the light isnt to hot... if it is consider bending and tying down the tallest plant gently at an angle and/orjust get another fan or any other cooling meathod

    Ok. Lets pretend the sativa on the left is not there. The other eight plants (the ones that this whole thing is about) are clones from the same mother. But maybe your right about the others being to close.

    Ok now it seems that what you are asking is unclear to me. Ok ill pretend your tallest plant doesnt exist. Now whats the problem? some plants are dense and some arnt? if they are clones from the same mother you should not have some sativas and some indicas.. they should all be the same.. Other factors that could change your plant/bud size include but are not neccesarily limited to: Pot size, amount of soil in each pot, how well each pot drains, nutes, watering schedule... thats all i can think of off the top of my head.. make sure all of those r equal and if they r clones from the same mother they will be the same looking or very very similar.

    We are on the same wave length now. They are all the same strain. I think it must be the pots or soil density because they are different. Cheers for trying to help.

    stick a thin stick in from the bottom drainage holes up through the top of the dirt and from the top down 2 the bottom... if ur dirt is 2 compact it will help it drain and break it up
