Buds. Not fattening
HiMonkeys answered grow question 3 years ago
Hi, PK booster would be the way to go, what i also like to do is flush my plants with 7.3PH water and give it 48 hours of "TOTAL" darkness before harvest i belive that it works great and it does help to fatten up the buds just a little bit at the end.. and testing it i saw a difference in smell and leaves seemed to get just a notch frostier.. hope it helps man ! happy growing :D

Hey adam, check out my grow of Auto GG, these take a while, and there's little you can do to speed it up. So this plant is a wierd one, it has a spurt end of veg, then a flower stretch, then a couple weeks later (next week for you) she'll start to foxtail for the next 2/3 weeks. What i did was add mollasses (it s cheap and it's bio ! ) for the first couple of stretches then add mag sulfur + P/K . make sure you have some chelation agents on hand you're looking for fluvic and hummic acid (cheap and bio aswell!) , that should help these gals blow up something serious. let me know dassit :rocket:

Hello ! You will need to use a PK booster as PK (Phosphorus & Potassium) are involved in bud fattening maybe a taste enhancer like top max or bud candy. And please low your PH to 6.5 (maxi) as it will cause a ph burnt if you keep feeding with a 7 ph level. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

Hi @adam69! Well, I'd love to help, but we're missing some crucial informations in here. What's your medium (brand/name)? What nutrients have you been giving to your babies, at what frequency? Have you been using some P+K booster lately? When did flowering started? From what I see on your latest pictures, I can tell that they suffered from nutrient toxicity (burnt tips + dark foliage) so I would recommend to avoid any nutrients from now and flush it with plain pH'd water, or add some very light doses of P+K then prepare for the flush next. I also see that your pH is almost neutral (7.0) whereas in soil you want it slightly acidic (6.0~6.5). Have you been using a pH-pen + an EC/ppm-meter? Finally, buds tend to fatten up during their last 2 weeks, so as always within the growing-game, patience is the key :sunglasses: Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
