    Bud does it work?

    Okay, So i know everyone says that the last couple of weeks of the flower phase are the "most crucial" for "bud fattening". So what i want to know is, is there a scale by how much a buds density increases those last couple of weeks? 2x, 3x, 5x denser????? I figured people have come to realize the "flowering stretch" and could estimate how much a plant would grow, but what about this?? Anyone?

    All depends on how you grow your plant - do lots of little tricks all the way through growing and I end up with buds averaging 2 - 5 grams each dried.

      Hard to judge bud density like that. Sometimes bud density fools me after drying. You will see them bulk up, no doubt about that. How much, I think would depend on genetics.

      running all simultaneously for a perpetual harvests.


        humans dont often recognise change until its about 10%. swelling often occurs last couple weeks.density is a different change. hope this makes sense.

          Yeah for sure Ell and if thats the case 9fingerleafs ive noticed some huge trich encrusted calyxs. So hopefully some super dense big buds?

          Yeah hopefully. But you won’t really know how dense until it’s dried, there are some seriously resinous plants with fluffy nugs but modern hybrids are guaranteed to grow nice buds

          Check dr.grinspoon strain. Grows super weird with fat round calyxes covered in trichomes but they grow along the branch and don’t cluster into buds

        This might help you.
