New white hairs everywhere

Hey guys. Plant started flowering in April. My bad, I don’t remember exact time. I’m thinking mid April. Anyways… she’s fox tailing like crazy. Some hairs have receded back into the calyx and I’m just getting tons of new white hairs. Trichs are 75% cloudy and 25% clear. These pics are with light on but I covered with my hand and used flash.

Should be around 70 days into flower by now. I grew this strain before and she ran about 84 days before I chopped. This plant is a clone off my last run. 600w hps about 24-36 inches from tops. Temps run about 75f and humidity ranges 45 at night and 35-40 lights on. What are your thoughts?83C56A82-A653-477F-BD6C-CD8D13E40A94.jpeg105D4608-B65C-4AA9-B9F5-225CF4BF2B9B.jpeg5BB26385-C623-4406-A994-041C23C73B85.jpeg42540F7C-5148-4EE7-A87E-6E2FDD9BE649.jpegA04F03BF-DF10-40CD-BE06-73FE185AB863.jpeg306CE192-E577-4C29-8DCE-7056815815C5.jpeg

I will usually get some new pistal development when I try to get the plant to enter senescence.
Looks like you're getting a good fade, but I like to wait until I don't have clear heads left before I chop.

They looking good, but perhaps too much Heat & light intensity over the 12 hours at this stage of flowering.
My 600w hps is hooked all the way to the top of my grow tent, no ratchet hangers. I could turn my light down to 400w but don’t want to damage my bulb.

That’s what I like too. The mother of this plant yielded me just under 600g. She was a single plant. This one is half the size if that. I waited, like I said, 84 days til I chopped. My predicament is I’m moving in a month and a half out of state and need it to finish up fairly quickly here

I was just reading this from YT..WITH 40 YEARS of experience in the game....I STRONGLY feel this is a legit concern, and I DO decrease intensity the last 10-14 days of flower....Couple reasons...I am reducing nutrients which make the plants more susceptible to light and heat damage...In nature, there is a considerable reduction in intensity for INDICA varieties....Sativa varieties in nature do not see the variation in lighting intensity, or number of hours of daylight for that matter....I for one do not grow pure landrace eqitorial sativa strains requiring 13+ weeks of flowering....many BRED variations flower faster but were talking natural conditions...Indicas see FAST reduction on # of hours of daylight, with the sun MUCH LOWER in the sky...This is why strong indica dom plants flower fast...Cold is coming and reproduction is expedited before they die from a strong frost...So, They ARE getting much weaker intensity late in flower....Ever notice how frosty buds are just down from the main colas...Secondary branching that gets a little shading and less intensity....Modern lighting is INTENSE and WILL evaporate resins high up and facing strong light....This is typically not an issue if your running lower wattage lights....BUT CERTAINLY is a concern running 1000w HID lights and some LEDs (some are much stronger than a few yrs ago)....I've run 1000w HIDs for 4 decades now, and have watched this phenomenon a LONG TIME....intense lighing is critical for bud mass, but once your bud mass is done, late trich production, and ripening is a delicate process....They LOVE TO SWELL AND BASK IN A MUCH LESS INTENSE LIGHT....You spend months getting to this point, so you'd hate to evap your efforts.....I'm not a botanist, but been growing since 1979....less is better the last 10-14 days...You certainly cant lose yield, cause thats already locked in at that point....It time to grow and care for your trichs at this point....YT

Too much misinformation and information from people that should stay off th we groups.. but this guy knows what he is talking about.

Ok, I can lower my wattage tomorrow morning when lights are off. I’m just nervous it’ll damage the bulb and cause a different light spectrum. I do have a 250w hps but I accidentally hooked it up and ran it at 600w so it’s super bright orange compared to a yellow. I can’t do much about temps. It’s been solid 100-110 here in California for the past week-2 weeks.

He got more information about this but I'd have to find it...but I'm at week 7 myself and am going to experiment on how the plant reacts to lower intensity and heat during the ripening stage..so I've gone from 1800w to 1200 which has reduced my heat dramatically and switched to 11/13..with DJ shorts method, to see the results with my own eyes, Can't hurt to try none the less?!:)

You can absolutely dim it down with a digital from 600w to 400w it's just not advisable... you'll burn out the bulb quicker, but it's just totally up to you end of the day, your stuff looks fire regardless, very nice
