i have had some problems along the way with nutrient and ph balance

this being my first time i was expecting a certain level of difficulty 

please ignore my hairy budds as i have 3 cats and a dog it was impossible to avoid unfortunately

 

any help with this discolouration 

i am worried i should pick so the issue doesnt spread but there is no amber in the resin glands to the center of the flower

so im afraid i may be early 

 

help from anyone would be greatly appreciated

They look like they'll be done soon, as as for the leaf discoloration, the

plant is finishing it's last days flowering, and will be dying. It's put everything

it's got into flowering, so the leaf discoloration wouldn't bother me at all.

 

As for the hair..... kitty.gif

The plant does look close to finishing. Fade happens around this time, it is the plant using the nutes it has as it ends its lifespan. Growers will cease feeding the plants close to harvest, giving them just water so they have time to use the available nutes and this means the buds will burn more cleanly, without the cough inducing nutrients being in the finished bud. Usually the last week or two of just water to clear the plant of excess nutrients.

 

Below is a chart th@ should help you some in identifying which nutes the plant might be deficient in. It looks too late now to really have any effect on helping the plant but a little study will enable you to determine which nutes it is deficient of and fine-tune your next grow.

 

I too get doghair on ma buds...its about the one thing I have never seen a solution for :stick out tongue: hehehe

 

When asking for help on things like this it is most useful if you can include such info as wh@ medium is being used, the nutes, the age of the plant and any other info you have on it [strain, light, method of growing etc...]. This allows anyone giving advice to be more accurate rather than a blind guess.

 

Kudos, ya plant looks great!

Looking at the picture I'll agree it's fade, and it looks like purpling that some plants have at the end. We recommend the grow FAQ http://www.greenpass...-FAQ/index.html that covers the basics. Some of the info is dated, but it'll help things along ....

I see this withered looking leaftops at late flowering mostly at my indica dominated plants, but this might not be a rule. Nice buds, what strain is this? Looks a bit purple...

Probably you need tweezers before smoking  Hysterical

@ lammuA, nice chart there, do you have that with higher resolution to print?

Peace, Martin

i think i flushed a little early 

i got a little ahead of myself on the process and timing and rushed the harvest process

but im still learning 

no excuse for the hair...although like i said i didnt see how to avoid it but may be able to cut down with some fine tuning to the operation of the box

i will be tweezering like mad for sure

 

we are approx in wk 8 and its supposed to be lemon skunk and i expected fan leaf die back but not leaves so close to the bud that what worried me

 

been straight water for 2 weeks anyways maybe a bit more


thanks for the speedy help

If your 2 weeks into flush, I'm amazed it doesn't look worse. Time to harvest them...

Now that, despite being a nice looking bud, is exactly why my cats are banned from the growroom... that and eating the leaves.

just keep your pets out of your grow area.  that's disgusting.

 

If you find yourself repeatedly going yellow, back into the buds and you want to keep the 2wk "flush", give 'em a big shot of N right before you switch from veg to bud.

I keep my pets out of my grow area....but the room IS in the house and the cabinet draws air and thus hair IN to the cabinet.

Nothing short of an air filter system would keep the hair out.
