Does Stem Rub Tell You The Flower Smell?

Discussion in 'Advanced Techniques & Problems' started by MeanGreen420, Feb 13, 2019.

  1. Wanna know if the smell from stem rub give you the smell your flowers are gonna be? Or is stem smell most likely totally different than what your buds will smell like?

  2. I have had both. Flowers that smell much like the plant in bloom and flowers that smell nothing like the plant live.

    Also have had flowers change completely after some time curing.

    My answer probably doesnt help much.
     
  3. Your answer helps a lot because I have no idea yet lol. Now I got an idea of how they compare. Thank you!

  5. This is a great question,Ive been growing alot of strains over the last 40 years and cant remember ever rubbing a stem for smell.Ive squeezed alot of buds and rub some leaves but rarely smell the stem, I will give it a go and report back. On the question though early plant growth doesnt always replicate the flower smell,if it does, what does it mean? Better potency? Better flavor?

    A little bit yeah, if you rub your fingers just at the node where the leaf petiole joins the stem. But only once it's somewhat mature. You wont get much smell off of young plants.

    It’s not prom night, ffs. Kidding. You do get a hint of the smell later in veg. In flowering you can rub the trics and get a much better sense for how the terps will turn out. But it can change once you dry and cure it. Usually not a lot but some.

  19. Thank you. Her problem is personal and embarrasing so that is all i will say here. The surgery will fix the issue. She is looking forward to it.
