    Hi Tika , I really enjoyed reading the link, thanks for posting.....do you think this could be a form of polyploidism(?)brought on by the intensity of LED's?.......they look cool anyway lol

    I was reading that this morning! I've never seen that before.

    I'd call them something different like White Caps, Snow Peaks, Icing, IDK something different than White Tops lol.
    I'm an old man with dementia, there are times I don't recognize myself in the mirror, why the hell are you taking advise from me?!

    Until you can explain to me why a person in America should ever be subject to imprisonment when they have injured no other person, stolen nothing, and damaged nothing, any argument you have against changing current drug laws is moot..

      I know huh? White caps seem natural.
      I have them under LEDs since I started to grow with leds...scared me at first!

    Pardon my intrusion first hand, it seems to be light bleaching on the tips of the buds, gwe has almost identical picture from led grow plants showing the high light intensity actually bleached the tips of the newly forming buds, just my 2 cents. Happy growing tika!

      Indeed....but louping it..one sees a different structure than normal bud. No matter either way...it is the absence of chlorophyll ..and
      ...pretty.
      No intrusion whatsoever...the more the better

      “We’ve had white tips analyzed separately from the green part of the same bud and found they have higher [concentrations of] THC and much higher terpenes than the rest of the plant,” she noted."

      Can you just hear the BOOM followed by the rushing wind of every cannabis grower simultaneously facepalming then rush to buy LED's if it turns out to be something? roflmao.

      It could happen.... (in whosoever voice used that phrase, I can't remember.)

      What's funny is that because it only apparently happens with LED's and anything higher THC, that looks cool, and best of all is rare commands higher prices, LED's could see a surge of interest. No not everyone switching but an increased interest at least. I'm really happy with my little GH600 but to make those I'd look more closely at top end LED's

      And I love mine too, and stop stomping on my funny

    I thought it was possibly bleaching as well, until i looked closer and could not find any obvious chlorosis or any plant matter except trichs. They definitely appear to be more dense at the top. Explaining why LEDS do this is hard, they dont offer any real light quality advantage over HPS. The most likely reason for me would be the LED'S optics which allow more vertical uniformity and penetration... This could allow the plant to develop more efficiently and rely less on nutrient translocation. If the plant does not have to move nutrients as much, the tops may be receiving such a high level of energy and developing at a faster rate compared to the rest of the plant due to the slight advantage of more light.

    Being wrong, is only a opportunity for getting things right.

      Working on that concept... The image Leafly put out clearly showed a different "construction". Than the bud.
