But yah, the buds will get denser as the finish line arrives.
Here is the Fox Farm feeding schedule for soil. soilfeed.pdf

Well, looking for some proven advice to make buds more dense. I have a Mr. Nice guy growing and she is doing great, I used the LST method and as advertised I have more bud sites then I can count. I am using FFOF soil and have been feeding with tiger bloom and grow big. SHe is 5 weeks into flower and she has stopped stretching and now its all about the
BUD. So, what are the secrets or methods to increase BUD density. I figure I will flower her another 4 to 5 weeks
I have read that adding sugar or mollases during the last weeks before harvesting will increase dry bud weight by 20%. I haven't used the method my self so I cannot verify this claim. You might want to look into though. (found in Jorge Cervantes Indoor/Outdoor Growers Bible and a few sources online). Good luck!

Dankafied, Humboldts purple maxx and gravity..I have to say I have not heard of that stuff. I will do some home work and check it out. I'll ask the guy at the Hydro store about it. I ccan tell the weight of the bud is going up as the branches are starting to show signs of weight. If its good stuff I'll start using it in about a week or two and watch for results. Thanks

The real secrets are no secret at all:
- More Light
- Plant training
- Larger Pots
- Air pots
- Proper nutrients and PH

growing with hydro allows you to give your plants their specifically targeted amount of nutrient strength and much larger amounts of oxygen to the roots so if you want more bud next time you may want to give that a shot. adding more light is often an easy way to get more bud too.
