I was wondering how you get dense buds.
I always end up with super fluffy stuff that's a real pain to trim. Every time with every strain I've grown it's extremely fluffy. Just got done trimming for over 20hrs on a single plant, it was huge but still, wayy too much time.
Using a single 5gal dwc bucket, gh nutes, with a 600w hps in an open closet. I'm thinking it's too warm in the room. It gets around 80-85f on hot days. I had a wall fan blowing at the space between the top of the plant and the light, but not directly on the girl. I was using a cool mist humidifier for a while until the plant got huge and raised the humidity on it's own. The light is an all-in-one ballast/light combo, I cut a hole and screwed in a computer fan on one side to cool it down.
I lst'd it about a foot out in every direction and trimmed 8 inches up so the lower portion wouldn't leave me with un-trimmable airy popcorn. The very top buds were ok to trim but below that it just kept getting worse.
If anyone has any ideas I'd like to hear 'em
