@Porky1982 I would agree on that, i've spent the last two weeks searching for possibly causes for that... Started 3 different topics on different forums and we couldn't figure it out... Everything is controlled

They look good to me, there's some phenos that look dank to be honest, it's growing great it's just the terp thing

Yeah mate it's got me baffled. The only time I've heard of buds that don't smell has been when plant growth regulators have been used.
Your buds don't look they have had them used.

@kwigybo88 How's that supposed to help ? 85F is pretty hot and terps are volatile so... Can't see that bringing back terps and as i said never had any problems with that.

General comment. Yield will be significantly lower running 73. As for terps i have no idea. Hard to believe you grew 10 plants and they all smell shitty. Doesnt sound like exotic to me.

@Porky1982 I don't even know what plant growth regulators are hahahaha :(... I've got a Biscotti cross and a Sour Banana Sherbet cross growing RN let's see if i have different results with that

@MY OWN DANK Yeah, i'm disappointed i got a shitty Moby Dick clone from Dinafem which is a third class breeder and it's better than those exotic plants
One of my "go to" strains in my seed stock is Guicey G from Exotic...gasey lemon cleaner smell...but to be fair its the only strain I've grown from them...did get a couple different phenos 20191217_161918.jpg20191220_223739.jpg20191217_161710.jpg20200103_083700.jpg

I just recently harvested some Jabba's Stash from Bodhi and I commented on the Bodhi thread how it had no smell in flower. I could squeeze the buds and still get no smell on my hands. Dried it up, jarred it and the first few days it was a nasty green smell, like brocolli instead of hay. I was pissed off and tossed the clone. Now after a week and a half in the jar its unmistakable bubba kush espresso and Hershey chocolate and I'm kind of regretting throwing out the clone.

Maybe they're all crap like you said but there's always a chance it'll come out in the cure.

Hey guys just stopping by to share some experience that i had with Exotic Genetix... I'm about to harvest two different genetics from them one is Peanut Butter N Chocolate (Dosidos x Mint Chocolate Chip) and Paradise Circus (Tropicanna Cookies x Tina)...

Been growing them on a controlled enviroment with temps set at 73F, RH set at 45-50%, tons of ventilation, good lights (4x240w QuantumBoards LM301h), 50% coco 50% perlite, using General Hydroponics Flora Series...

I've got from the 20 seeds, 10 females a good female/male ratio... They grew beautifully, fat buds, tons of resin, Paradise Circus showed purple/pink colors in every pheno... Everything is great but they don't smell.

All 10 female, all 10 garbage hay phenos, not a single one has terps on them... I've thought i was doing something wrong, i've double checked every single aspect of my grow and yes my conclusion is bad genetics...

Based on my experience i wouldn't recommend Exotic Genetix to anyone... Maybe i had bad luck, but from 10 plants none of them have a single smell that's BS to me. I had better experience with low tier european breeders... Definetly disappointed.

Tomorrow going to get some photos of this instagram buds. Only beautifull, no terps...
I have a yard full of exotic genetics, chocolate chimp,monkey berries, gummy buns they reek up the whole area. Idk but imo if igot everything i wanted but smell i wouldn't personally make a bad experience thread about the genetics
 
My only 2 cents is like others said maybe ur temps are too low, also what is the difference in temp between lights on and lights off? I would think at least 80° lights on and 70° off would be good. From my understanding the difference is VERY important, ya need atleast a 5° difference but no bigger than 15 or shock can occur. I have 3 Grease Monkey s1's that just went into flower, hopefully they come out nice. Best of luck man ✌

Its entirely possible to have two different crosses with very mild terps. This is why pics can be so deceiving. I grew out a couple packs from In House a while ago and they were beautiful plants but they smelled and tasted like cardboard. And I dont think its your temps. If anything the lower temps would help preserve the terps.

But, I wouldnt give up on Exotic. Mike puts out some great crosses.

Also, they could develop with with the cure. Got my fingers crossed for ya.

This is the nature of popping seeds everybody. Sometimes you get phenos with no smell, and sometimes you get good smelling phenos. It's not that all of exotic genetix is bad or good. No breeder is all bad or good. This whole thread is an exemplification of that, with everyone sharing their different experiences. Well, duh, you all popped different seeds lol. My complaint with exotic so far is a high herm tendency. Higher herm chance than any other breeder I've tried, and more intense herms than any other breeder.

@Aheadatime That's my conclusion but it's not final maybe i'm doing something wrong... I've thought it could be fert related since i was using only the 3 part FloraSeries which has low S...

With led lighting plants like it warmer so like 80-85 but that won't effect smells. Also I'm using general hydroponics micro and bloom, no need for grow formula, and I'm getting aromas on all my plants flowering.

Honestly if your plants look like they do then you should be getting aromas from them so no idea why you're not. 10 plants means 10 phenos and you should be getting some kind of smell so I have no clue whats up.

My only suggestion would be try cleansing you smell palette before sniffing plants. It may help but maybe you just got extremely unlucky this go round. Hopefully the taste better than they smell!

I grew his Cookie n cream and it as similar to what how you describe. Beautiful, colorful buds full of frost but minimal smell. The smoke was decent though.
