Please help. On my third grow and I can't get the big buds. I have popcorn buds and I can't get anything bigger. I use down to earth nutrients. There 444 and 484, worm castings and compost tea. What do I need to add and what am I doing wrong?
give us a few pics of your plants/set-up and i'm sure someone will figure it out , the crew in here are pretty good growers . if you can't do pics there's also growweedeasy.com with plant problems / symptoms search .
There are a lot of things that go into the rock hard buds that people post pictures of. First off what strains are you growing? Genetics have a lot to do with the quality of buds you get. Autoflowers tend to have less dense buds so that might be an issue. Finally, the lights you are using and how far away from the plants can significantly effect bud density. I suggest going to growweedeasy.com and doing some research on growing and I bet you will be posting some rock hard nuggets in no time!
Using two Grow lights MORSEN Grow Light, 1200W led Grow Light MORSEN Grow Light and 600W led Grow Light Regular Super silver haze Feminized Candy kush Regular Black widow Feminized Og kush All strains are from nirvanashop.com
The lights were 6 inches from the plants during flower and are now two feet from the plants now in flower
I started off feeding them worm castings, mycorrhizae, and down to earth 444 in the soil from seedling up until flower. I did low stress training and got a full canopy for the tent. I then switched to worm castings and 444 and 484 for flowering watering on and off with a compost tea made Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Molasses and FoxFarm Big Bloom Liquid Concentrate. I only water with Poland springs distilled water. I started off with small started cups then moved to 2 gallon fabric pots to 5 gallon fabric pots. Not sure what else to say hopefully you guys can give me some pointers with this info. Ph also have a tamp of 77f and humidity for 40 to 45.
that's the problem right there! you are using blurple lights! I did 2 runs with those and a mars hydro full spectrum and trust me you would NOT believe the difference! finish your run and switch your lights. Mars hydro and Spider farmer are very good for the price, just make sure what ever light you chose that they have the soft white, bright white, infra red, and bloom red. From your pictures everything else looks good.
