Re: no trichonomes

The pistils (white hairs) grow out of little pod like structures called calyxes. The white hairs will change color to red or brown and will then begin to recede into the calyxes. When this occurs, the calyxes will swell and become covered with trichomes. The trichomes are very small and hard to discern with the naked eye but you will tell they are there by the appearance of a white frosty appearance on the leaves close to the flowers. I think I can seem a bit already in the top picture you posted.

Here is a closeup of a flower that shows what I am talking about a bit better.

This was taken at around 8 weeks flower.

Different varieties produce trichs at different times in flowering and in different quantities. If u start bombarding an average hybrid with UV rays, it will start producing them even in first week of flowering, and I'm talking outdoor here. I guess you just got a sativa pheno, which will probably start producing resin a bit later in flowering, but it's gonna happen eventually. Aaaa, resin production rarely has anything to do with potency, this is just another myth.

Your plant looks ok, seems its just into phase 2 of flower, pushing pistils out and gaining size among buds. Most my girls have shown early trich formation around the sugar leaves in bud. My gurl atm is packing trichs and is not too far from harvest, most her growth has happened over past 3-4 weeks.. Still got a couple left... Smokemup
