Early tricomes

My dragons breath is only in week 3 of flower and still has popcorn nuggets that aren’t thickening. There over quantities make up for bigger buds so weight isn’t gonna be an issue because I’m averaging more with smaller buds. Plus I’m only at week three and I heard dragons b takes 14 weeks of flower usually. I’m just trying to figure out if it’s possible for tricomes to start appearing and be present at week three of flower. I still have between nine and 11 weeks to go and seeing how they are tiny mushrooms makes me wonder if that’s going to cause me a problem being on some of the buds as early as they are. It looks like somebody just sprinkled sugar all over the leaves and the bud I’ve never had a plant tricome this early. Is this normal or do I have a problem

I've never heard of too many tricoms being a problem. Usually if you get a ton they stack up like rails.

Sorry but I think you're gonna have way too many trichomes by the time it's done... :/
That’s what I’m aiming for but never seen them at week 3 before. It’s not even an auto flower. I Have all the stems including the Tops tied straight down but I’m starting to think that I’m needing to untie the colas and let them grow out.

I’m not worried about there being too many tricomes. They can resin that sticky icky all they want. I’m more worried that the try combs are appearing on week three of flower instead of week 8 or nine like they usually do. Ive seen some at week six sometimes on auto flower. Technically the tri combs are tiny mushrooms which means it also includes fungus. Making me think that there is too much moisture in my tent even though the temps and pH levels are OK. I’m just scared that if I’m seeing them this early come harvest it’ll cause me problems with bud rot or mold if that makes sense. Here’s the lady.

This is 100% super wrong information.

Trichomes, which is how it’s spelled, are absolutely not a fungus or mushroom. They are glandular structures that contain the cannabinoid loaded oils of the plant.

Trichomes are a defense mechanism for the plant... it’s odd they’re coming this early but equally concerning your hairs are turning orange so early.

Any details? What’s the temperature?

Some plants form trichomes during veg. It’s part of the plants genetic expression :). Really nothing to be concerned with.

Looks.like the light is a loooong way away... maybe just the pic.

I know its got a lot of sativa in there but the buts are looking quite fluffy and the brown hairs.... I woukd say it might be too arid in there. Try increase humidity for the 1st half of the grow to 60%

Who the hell told you that shit about it being a tiny mushroom?? I think I heard some shit like that back in Jr high haha. That is totally false. No need to worry about fungus and rot from trichome formation.

I know that there classified as hairs. But I had wise old hippies who told me and said noones really done the science when I was stoned and I got me thinking. They shape just like mushrooms and cloud up . And only females are technically medanical. What if the hairs from the flower make the tricomes appear on the hairs. It is from mysterious shit right there. Like a microscopic shroom.

Nope it’s not mysterious and the old hippies are wrong about the science not being done. While everything about cannabis hasn’t been studied at length, the basic botanical structures have been well documented.

The temps are 70-75 and my Ec ppm runs between 248-259

Check this guy out he has good info on lighting. He done a study and showed that weed has no limit on light and can reach as far as I push it. Thought I’d enjoy.

She's definitely got a long time to go..but That's not much frost at all, odd question on a plant that has almost zero frost. Id be more concerned about those pistils browning up..any chance she got some pollen?

Idk if he talks about clones in this video but he learned that they actually like high amounts of light rather than low lights.

There’s No pollen there’s just tricomes on some of the buds at week 3 and a lot of red hairs. I looked up the strain and it said the hairs will eventually turn almost blood red when she’s done. Cant wait to see em.

Did you spray her with something?

No she just grows that way. The only thing I’ve ever gave her was miracle grow feed at my first veg feed and then big bloom and tiger bloom at feeding She’s been a very big maintenance plant but worth it. I can’t wait to see everything turn golden red. Instead of letting the colas grow up I tied every stem since clone long ways horizontally and micro topped them stems to do the same thing and it made colas explode everywhere. She’s doing fine other than early combs. Didn’t know if that was gonna be an issue or not.
