Anyone know what the little white bump here is? Is it just a little bud starting or something else?

Cleaned and filled my reservoir today. Just about finished the fourth week of flower, things are rocking! The flowers are getting bigger and kolas are starting to form. We’ll add Overdrive next week. Right now they’re still on AN CoCo Conoisuer A/B, B-52, Bud Candy. Starting to think about vegging my next grow.

Yeah, it just looks like a small bud to me. Is it squishy or harder?
Thanks. I had figured that out. Starting to get a bunch of new buds. That one was just unusual looking because it was already frosty.CD8CF77F-D09C-45D7-8A1D-8DE451076D54.jpegC72C4A73-12D6-467F-86C9-0B4022AA9C77.jpeg57D367DB-8F96-44FB-95ED-52DD0A041058.jpeg7A204599-012F-45A8-B4B0-D28C7EB04645.jpeg35A76F9E-2135-43A0-8B59-DCA42DBD598C.jpegA1270E7D-80C0-40E7-8FE3-2A58600152B5.jpeg7AE9EA0E-9A2F-437B-B245-7EA5A9638E17.jpeg6184497A-C63D-4D3A-831A-D6CD764034BA.jpeg

I was just doing a bit of morning trimming and got some resin from one of my Gelato on my hands. Oh man! Those seeds should come with insulin, because that is one of the sweetest smells I’ve ever experienced. It’s like candy coated dankness...I couldn’t be happier. And they’ve got another 4 wks. Whoo effin hoo!

Lookin good Otto!! I’m sorry when I said Otto, first thing that popped in my head was Otto the school bus driver from the simpsons. You should change your display picture to him! Lol that would be epic!

So the bud on the top of one of my colas is looking different than all the others. Wondering if it’s cause for concern?

Is that fucker re-veging? :nerd-with-glasses: I can’t really tell. Are you able to get some more photos?
I’ll take some more when I’m back in the garden. It was right under the 630w CMH, so I moved it slightly, to get the cola away from the light/heat. We’ll see if that helps. It’s a different cola on the same Gelato that stretched like mad at the switch.
I ended up just using a strap to pull that other cola from the light and tying it to keep it bent. The idea of super cropping still makes me a bit queasy. Lol. It’s like breaking your kid’s leg to make it stronger. But I’ll try it next grow with plants I’m less attached to. LOL.

Lmao! I can get where your coming from. I mean, more my first grow then anything. I’m a bit of a rough person and was very fragile with my first grow. They’re hardy as fuck though! One resilient weed I tell ya!
Super cropping is really easy, you just pinch the part of the branch where you want to super crop it. Almost to the point of snapping. You leave it bent over, and walk away. Within 3-6 hours (sometimes longer) the plant will be back up praying towards the light. At a different angle then before. It’s one of our most utilized toosl in horticulture! :thumb:

I’m not trying to push you to do it, if you don’t, I get that... just saying. I tend to ramble when I get stoned!:blunt:

I have a few branches that got accidentally super-cropped. Lol. They’re doing well.

I plan to get a little more experimental with the next grow. I’m going to separate tents for veg and flower, with a continual harvest every few wks. or so. So once it gets going, I’ll harvest 4-5 plants every few weeks and flip the same number of vegging plants to replace them. That way I can try HST stuff like super cropping or manifolding on a few plants, without risk of f***ing up the whole crop.

Here are a few more pictures of that one bud. I think it got stunted by heat/light right under the CMH. But I don’t know.

That’s weird could be revegging but watch it cause it could be a hermie too.
The rest of the cola is solid. Should I just take that bud off?

It seems to have a few more pistils, so I’m cautiously optimistic. It has nice buds developing underneath, as you can see on the wider shots.30A7C724-DF1E-4476-8BE5-0537066D5BD9.jpeg507F4916-B063-4F07-B515-B460238B4CF3.jpegEF32E95F-0B47-40E4-AB7D-05B5063E9B9A.jpegF451674F-7077-4BFB-BC13-77A430B8B2CD.jpeg

How close to the light are your tops?
That one was directly under the CMH. It started to grow up into it. I moved it when it got to about 8-10 in. Now it’s still about a foot and a half from the side of the light and a foot (or a bit more with the bend) under.

A couple of the Gelato really stretched quickly and caught me off guard. They just shot up to the CMH when I added it.
