    Buds not so fat, what did i do wrong?

    This is my first grow ever. It's a purple bud from sensiseeds.
    I just flushed it because I saw most trichs going cloudy, so it has about 2 weeks left I guess?

    I'm proud of the size of the plant but I just find all bud sites except for the main colas to be kinda small and useless. What can i do in the future to have more of a coherent, fat stalk filled with buds?

    I appreciate any tips and help and opinion on my babygirl

    I have the same problem I would like to follow this


      Without knowing much detail per Elgoryt i'm just commenting on what i see, theres ways of explaining about a problem plant by giving us info on the strain, soil, lights, is it from seed a clone???? Have you done any self help by reading how to grow weed??
      First and formost this plant needed a brighter light than what it had unless you want a houseplant which is what you got. You took off all it's food leaf and so it needed ferts.

        I did some basic research yes but i'm still learning and experimenting! Thanks for the tip i'll look into some better lighting and i'll leave the fan leaves on longer when i'm on my next grow. I guess I just started lollipopping too excessively and early!

      I agree and think you may be flushing too early. They can still fatten a bit so I would give bloom nutes yet.

        I tried looking to the trichs and from what I could see I thought it was getting there. I do however hear that harvesting too early is the biggest and most common mistake for newbies so I will look out for it next time, Thanks!

      I agreed with @SoOrbudgal and @TOKABIGONE it's food deprivation.

        It looks a lot like the first harvest I had. I only had a T-5 fluorescent panel for lighting. I was a noob too and didn't "know" the plant yet. I'm pretty sure I took the plant down too early as well. Still, lighting was my biggest limiting factor then.

          Yep either you backed off on nutes or the light source wasn't enough full spectrum. chucking some seeds in a pot and watering it will grow a cannabis plant but having ideal growing conditions is what makes the plant produce healthy fat buds.
          I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.


            Not enough light.
