    I have a plant that is in a 10 square foot grow space. The plant is blue cookies strain and she is on a 12/12 cycle as she's in wk 3 of flower. FFOF soil with 10% Perlite/ feeding FF Nutes at quarter strength. pH.6.5 - RH 40% TDS 960
    Ive got a few grows under my the belt but I've never seen buds forming like this before.
    Anyone seen this before?

    The plants look stressed to begin with. For my liking and strain that RH is high. Is it spiking up higher when you shut everything down?

    What type of light? Is it just in one area of the plant or the entire plant? Hot spot from the light comes too mind.

    @Stink Bug I am running a 200watt t5 in a 10sqft (60"L x 24"W) (keeping it economical this go around) I thought it was light burn as well, so I raised the lights an additional 9" above the canopy. I figured to Spectrum or certain hotspots could have caused this to burn. But I have a total of 15 spots growing like this (scattered throughout the canopy), and the rest of the plant is growing just fine. It's no worries as I am not really freaking out, just really curious to know how they are Figuretively forming in this manner.

    I doubt a T5 would cause that. So hmmm...which FF Nute's are you using? The powder solubles even at a 1/4 dose can be hot for some plants.

    Is there a chance you spilled nutrients on that bud?

    Yea, I've got the 200 watt t5 and two 23 watt cfls 2700 all @ 9" above. I've asked around and no one has had this happen to them nor a name to identify. Bad genes??maybe or perhaps a simple mistake some where .I'm not perfect but I get more experience and knowledge.

    @Cold$moke No I've never spilled any nutes in her. I premix in a 15 gallon tote and top feed .Pot is elevated and drains into catch tray. Runoff is sucked up via shopvac.

    Weird

    And you said the humidity never spiked at night?


    Beats me if its not light bleaching from lights or dew or spilled nutes

    Then i have no idea

    If it was a deficiency of some sort the rest of the stuff would probably show it as well.

    Im stumped lol

    @Cold$moke I have a smartphone hygrometer and the the alerts on that are pretty good. Notifies me of temps and rh and also has a mini cam so I can see my grow room.
    It's definitely a deficiency of some kind or Dee perhaps. I just never seen it, but I still consider myself a new grower and I usually learn something new every time. Whether good or bad haha but that's the game . Lmk know if find a name for this condition / deficiency. ✌️

    Feeding the usual trio Big Bloom, Grow Big, Tiger Bloom. All feedings stay under 3ml
    Have fed cal-mag when I treated a deficiency during veg . Also feed Great White at 2.5mls.
    Followed the FF 12wk but schedule and dumbed her down to quarter strength as oppose to feeding 12mls and we all know that FFOF has tendencies to spike with nutes . The thought definitely crossed my mind. Last ec/TDS reading came in at 960, which is still a little high and I was planning on a flush to bring those numbers down a bit. I wonder if there's still time to treat this or would those sections no nopairable? And if they aren't, I may ahead and cut them perhaps. What are your thoughts?

    @charface - I think you may of won the prize, did a quick search and theres definitely a lot of resemblance there.
    And damn.... any recommendations on products and should I just treat it just because it looks like that?

    Im an extremist in a matter like this.

    I would kill those plants with fire and nuke the room.

    I don't make product recommendations, i don't keep up with the tech.

    I rely on my local hydro guys for that.
    Some products are no longer available here from year to year.

    Again, this is just my opinion.
    Others may have a better plan of action.


    Good luck.
