yes thats true too, you are going to get dense buds from a heirloom sativa lol.Genetics also play a role in bud structure. Some strains just won’t develop dense bud sites. Others will do nothing but develop dense budsites if conditions are right. I find kush and indica leaning strains to have the densest buds as they have evolved from climate that promotes that kind of genetic expression.
I track what your saying.1200 watt quantum board?
any cheapo light that has an “equivalent” is prob going to leave you disappointed
hps or cmh will do good too.
read the forums, majority of people asking about bud quality are growing with crappy blurples
which coincedentally put off alot of heat lmao.
heat also makes light wispy buds, things making sense?
crap azz blurple=lots of heat+shitty light spectrum = garbage weed> black market garbage= good in some peoples minds so they post about how their bud was good, but not as good as a hps/cmh/qb growers bud
Beautiful! Yea i just topped some of my plants. Want to find out what i like to do. His my name is bob, and this is my firat grow. Lolthese plants have some ph issues i found out what was wrong and screwed some things up
but i squeezed two of the buds today at almost week 5 flower (33 days) and the buds are hard and dense

im pretty sure OP is just trying to avoid wispy larf, which is more caused by shitty lights and high heat.I grow 4-5 strains each grow, indicas and hybrids, and think density is genetic more often than not when all things are equal.
More indica equates to much firmer density, practically rock like for me while hybrids are not as dense but after a long cure have a nice dry sponge like density.
Indica produces heavy and dense buds, Sativa's produce much less dense buds. The hybrids of the two sort of follow their hybrid proportions, with more Indica dominance equating with harder and dense buds. This is the general rule of thumb I've followed for a while now. IMHO.Lets start this out by saying.. in this green world of growing i am still germinating! Ha! Well i guess ive sprouted a bit. Been watching some friends progress in soil and one thing im noticing is fluffy buds. Is there a way you can always have dense buds?
As of now.. thanks to a friends mentality that "only the strong survive" i have an assortment.. 3 ak-47, mystery, and skywalker, all from seed; and a gsc from clone. I manage a dispensary and when we portion, if a magic bean falls out, its accounted for, the sprouted if its good. Lol.Also if you overfeed with N in veg and early flower the buds cant grow normally,sometimes they are twisted and smaller with dark green leaves and burned tips and they cant get denser till the end.... Too much N can really mess up the flowering even if you stop it meanwhile it stays and poisoning longer.It happens in soil with too much added amendments...…..You just cant back it off even if you want to
