Overgrown buds?....

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by w0034, Jan 12, 2013.

  1. Ok, so a couple of my plants at the end of the room seem to have 'overgrown' the buds. Have I pushed them too far? They have like gotten out of shape, like they are flowering a 2nd time. I don't see bananas, so I'm thinking they have no hermied?

    I haven't seen this look before, just wondering what it is, or what I've done. Will it cure ok? I was going to chop on Monday.

    It's master kush, 10 weeks. Was letting go to get the trichs to turn.

    Thanks for any insight.


  2. omg that looks yummy
  3. Those are some fat buds! Do they feel dense?
  4. Yes. I also took a top apart to see if there were seeds in it. Couldn't find any. I'm just kinda befuddled, never seen anything like this before. I'm a little nervous I guess not knowing....
  5. This is commonly called Foxtailing.

  6. By the way, it has been suggested that heat can help lead to this, and yes, it does happen after the 9-10 week mark.

    Don't be nervous - your buds will be just fine.

  7. It seems like it would add a lot of weight.
  8. harmless foxtailing!
  9. Foxtailing happens for many reasons and often for no reason.. altho heat, light leaks, over or un derwatering and even rumored budding too long can cause, but sometimes they just do it... when there is no cause, the reason is simply your plant.. a healthy unseeding plant at the last weeks of its lifespan will often start foxtailing, a stretching of calyxes to reach higher aand wider in a last ditch effort to ccatch any pollen that could possibly be in the air.. they are just tryin to be bigger to get laid, kinda like a boob job.. the stretching calyxes however are new growth and will not be as mature as the rest, something to keep in mind when checking trichs.. ive even read that foxtailed buds give a smoother hit...
  10. MMM...foxtail buds
  11. u can try going from 12/12 to 10/14, a week or so prior to harvest to let them know the season is over, and its time to finish up. some strains need the longer nights in order to get the clue.
