I’m using 2 600 what hps and a “900” watt led, been using bio bizz bloom, heaven, top max and cal mag ec between 1.6 and 2

just switched to advanced got sensi Coco a and b, big bud coco, overdrive, b52 and bud candy and I added a Lil sensizym coz I’m gonna reuse the coco they only had advanced for 1 feed

When my plants are ripening I like to reduce temps, dim lights and drop CO2 levels. This helps prevent foxtailing and I believe makes better product.

Avoid a ripening feed with too much phosphorous in it, that will kill flavor and resin production. We want plenty of Potassium though, thats required for terpene production as is Sulfur.

Also looks like you might be thick on the nitrogen. In flower we reduce nitrogen as we go along, as the plants are ripening we wish to see the fan leaves yellowing from the bottom up, indicating that we aren't providing too much nitrogen. Thats another quality killer.

really struggling to reduce temps, if I turn the lights down at this stage would that reduce yield?

I’m not quite sure what’s in advanced nutes kinda jus thought this is what they need to get the dankness into them, also some of them hermied I found balls and removed them and since then I’ve found a few seeds on lower branches but literally a few spread over 20 plants but maybe it could be possible that there’s seeds forming so resin production halted as the plants putting energy into making seeds?

No the opposite.

Learn about feeds, check out the thread linked in my signature so you can have a better understanding of nutrients and the balances, how to calculate.

Also look into supplemental UV. The dankest of dank usually has more than one type of light in the room. What I'm finding is most growers are adding reptile tank lights and it def helps. Your plants look good. But if you're looking for that super sticky, check out UV. Other than that(lights), we must look at nutes. As renfro said, Sulphur is great for taste/terps. I do believe this is another area where molasses can assist. Maybe somebody else will chime in and correct me.

WHOA. Absolutely the plant will stop getting denser and producing crystals once it's knocked up. That's a bummer. The good news is, it still looks dank enough that it won't be shitty. But yeah man, the hermie put it's foot on your neck. Hopefully there is a few that didn't get fucked? Those will def come out better if they exist.

the Plants in the pics aren’t the ones that I saw seeds and like I said the ones I did is only on the bottom buds and the tops of them are the stickiest that’s y I aint chop em. I’ll look into molasses too,as for the lighting I did think because the led is dual spectrum it would help with resin production, the heat issues I was gonna sort after I crop these by getting a tent and using a portable air conditioner on my intake to stabilise temps (especially as were going into summer) the ones doing low resin production are going into flush after the next feed so was jus wondering in there’s anything I can do to help in the last couple weeks to push it.

total newb at using the site how do I get into that and I was gonna use the advance nutrients app or do I not recommend that?

Can be genetics, ph problem or too high expectations based on visual appearance alone. Those buds looks delish imo.
