All your parameters seem good. I’m curious if it’s happening to to all your plants or just that one?
Is there any chance you damaged the shoots when they were developing? I have seen that type of growth before when a shoot gets damaged but the discoloration isn’t typical.
I’m spitballing a bit here but it looks a bit like some type of viral infection to me. Unfortunately, if that’s the case there isn’t much that can be done about it as it affects the plants genes.
Hopefully Chris will weigh in on this one soon. I’m curious if he might know.July 16, 2023 at 3:55 pm #2454July 16, 2023 at 3:56 pm #2455July 16, 2023 at 3:57 pm #2456July 16, 2023 at 3:57 pm #2457July 16, 2023 at 3:58 pm #2458July 16, 2023 at 3:59 pm #2459July 16, 2023 at 4:07 pm #2460
all plants were stunted growers at seedlings. I didn’t have a heat mat to keep the seedlings warm as a result they were slow growers until they were transplanted into a bigger pot. this plant seems to be the only one with this damage. the bud site in question is directly in front of a fan potentially too much wind stress. it’s had to tell but that bud site is old growth, the plant was mainlined and that growth is one of two nodes from the bottom. I hope the additional information and pictures help. all genetics are unknown and are probably four different stains. there is supposed to be at least one gorilla glue but not 100% certain.July 17, 2023 at 3:48 pm #2467mrgrowitKeymaster
I was typing my response and then read your post from the 16th after; it lined up with my thoughts! I was going to say, it looks like it’s just that one branch impacted since the other branches and other plants look fine. I was then going to ask if that branch is next to a fan or any other piece of equipment – which you mention it is. I also think it’s wind burn/stress. Rotating your plant daily or moving the fan so it’s not blasting onto that branch should definitely help it. Easy fix! I’m glad it’s nothing major. Plants look good otherwise. Nice job!July 17, 2023 at 3:57 pm #2469
thank you very much for the reply. I am working on a solution for the fans, I have four fans now got some ac infinity’s from prime days! what do you think about putting them on timers, 2 fans would be on for 12 hours, and then the others 2 would turn on? I can’t really rotate buckets now that I installed the blumats.
Thank you. I think they are doing well for my first grow, especially given their start, lol. I truly appreciate what you and the guys from the stash are doing for the community, keep it up!July 17, 2023 at 4:09 pm #2471mrgrowitKeymaster
As long as you feel air circulation is sufficient across the entire grow space then the 12-hours on, 12-hours off rotation you mention should be fine. I actually heard some people doing that in order to help increase the fan lifespan.July 17, 2023 at 4:23 pm #2472
my first thought was to prolong the life of the fans now its to help with damage to the ladies lol. I believe air circulation will be the same just alternativeing corners. I’ll keep in touch and let yall know how that are growing!
