What’s up w the lack of trichomes I see on A LOT of my auto flower crop?
I’ve currently got three diff strains of autos growing under a viparspectra light using a hydro technique I’ve used successfully for decades. Just like my last crop (2nd auto flower for me) there appears to be a real lack of trichomes on the flowers forget about the nonexistent sugar leaves.

When I look at the outdoor I’m growing I see mad trichomes (diff strain and photos not auto). I’m getting the feeling the autos are not anywhere near as productive from a medication and Stoney perspective as the photo stuff. Now I see pics of dudes w gnarley auto flowers. And truthfully my Mexican airlines auto was pretty decent but not even close to some alien fire photos that I grew for a decade Or any of the other well selected photos I can remember.

The strain is BS ( 207 genetics cheese)? Viparspectra light is crap?
What gives?

Hell the flower in the bottom photo has next to zero trichomes.

Late developer? Didn’t know this was a thing.

Anyone aware of a light growing large lovely flowers but negatively effecting trich production? Wondering about this vipar. Never seen or heard of this model and there’s little to no reported evidence to go by.

what size light, what size space, how many plants?

Weak trichome development usually due to weak light. How many true watts is this light? There’s trichs visible in your pictures.

The beans are from 207. The light is a dimmable viparspectra rated for 400 watts max. There’s 6 plants in 6sqft. Of the 6 two have great thrichome development and 4 have little. One has nada.

I would check your light, it could be bad or going weak. How old is your light?
My autos have lots of frost and I'm using a viparspectra p2500 light.

I do agree wholly that nothing will fix bad genes. The light is 6 mos old. I’m going to say it’s genetics. I’m not through w the run so there’s still time for an upswing (though I’m skeptical) and frankly my friends enjoy week bud a lot more than I so there’s always presents to be given come Labor Day.

Good auto beans are not easy to find and as big of auto fan as I am, I have to say photos are much more forgiving- every one of those plants will prolly finish differently - are you feeding them all the same? 1 looks nitrogen rich? And couple I’d likdd we to see better pics anc maybe what ur feeding ?
If your looking for good auto beans look up @Poekie he hasa sale goin and so far some of the nicest autos I’ve grown , none of that 60 day crap you need 90-100 for good auto in my opinion
