At about 4-6 days into flower, all of the apexes have begun to look sort of lumpy and there are very few pistils toward the apex of each spike. There are 8 cultivars growing, all showing this same structure (Lemon Drop bag seed pictured here). I've never seen this before and don't know what to make of it. Any advice would be very much appreciated!

 

P.S. The %RH actually ranges from ~ 52-74%, but the form wouldn't let me enter a range

@dr-jitter-bug, yeah raising the light would be the easiest and drop it to 750 or so but I'd give it more space like 60 instead of 25 and turn the dimmer up. But if the bumpy things look like green bell peppers then you might have issues.  They look light sensitive but not burnt yet, could be the strain maybe but you said something about 8.

Do you have an EC in and out?

@woodi2 Thanks heaps! I will figure out a way to raise the light (set up is kinda wonky on that rack) but will turn it down in the meantime. Yes, 8 cultivars at the moment! It is a semi-micro grow.

Dissected one of the buds under a scope, and wouldn't you know it - there were some male flowers in there. Going to sample all of them tomorrow. Urggg

Oh, and it is a 3:5 coco/soil media, so no EC or runoff measurements. The soil has some organic amendments in it too, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if it is a little hot with the Canna Coco in there too. Might back off of that and just use dilute kelp and fish for the rest of the run.

Sure seem to have messed up on this one!

Naw, you just learned a hard lesson the hard way. These are lesson that aren't taught on paper and so sometimes they meet you head on. But you won't forget this lesson! lol

So now you need to try and figure what happened? If you have 8 different strains that all did the same fuck-up, then why? It could have been a few things all combined together that caused this. So take a look at your grow and see what you can figure out, ask some questions on the forum too.

Your next grow will be better. No sense in crying over spilled beans, let's get a crackin!! lol 👍

Maybe not eight strains next time??? 😀

@woodi2 Hehe, indeed. Running 8 strains to do some crossing and to explore what the library has to offer, but yes, it is a lot to keep track of! Notably - one strain (Pakistan Valley Kush) does not have this problem, but... they are all under a different light! So - I'll make the best of this round and call it a wash on using anything that hermied for the crosses.

 

Doing more flower dissections today - should know more soon...
