Some pistols turning brown. It's the 4th week, seems a bit early to me. Some idea?

Hey there my friend, pistils turn brown when they oxidize that means basically that they get damaged somehow and the oxygen in the air makes the juices inside the pistils to rust basically, that's where the color comes from. This is important to remember because it can give us clues on what to look for to answer your question. First of let me just say some genetics turn brown early (like my auto colorado cookies) and some phenos turn more quickly than others. Beyond that oxydisation of the pistils can be from any number of factors from a fly piercing the membrance so kinetic reasons, or from environmental reasons like too much airflow on that part of the plant or a too high temperature which causes the pistils to degrade. At your temperature you should have probably lower humidity or at that humidity you should keep a cooler temperature. In my opinion it's a combination of genetics and environment and it's absolutely nothing to worry about. All the pistils turn brown after the chop anyway right? Hope this helps ! :rocket:

I’m thinking your light is to close as this happened to a buddy’s of mine you can increase the air flow and increase the distance a tad and I’m sure that will help his hairs all burned not really the top nugs either just the middles for some reason but he raised his light and it stopped it from further happening but still has the damage as there is no reviving from that.

The most common explanation is high temperatures. I would notice this and pretty much at the same amount of weeks (mid flower) on my Green Crack autos. In your case 81 deg is not extreme therefore look at other environmental factor such as airflow or the height of your light. 15” is very close if you have minimal air circulation and if your exhaust system isn’t drawing enough air. Best of luck.

I think I had the same thing on my Ggg3 due to high temps and not enough air flow.... Try to do everything you can to cool the room down and circulate air! But also don't worry too much it will still grow...
