Heat. Just read some Ask Ed this weekend. Days over 85. Even though the plants can live, and even thrive in high heat, 90-100+ make for stringy plants... like Sativas. Maybe the real 'changes' to the land-races that we know.

Bad light makes them 'stretch' but, bad light will give you airy buds... but bad, airy buds to boot.

Stay cool, stay safe.

I had heat issues this last run and it definitely dropped my harvest by about 25%, I did not get the tight buds like I did the previous run.

I live in a tropical climate and the above is right. The main cause is heat. We can grow some nugs the size of your fist but they are gonna be foxtailed if its a good strain. Otherwise they would die of mold most likely. I've never heard of bad light, but if the light is to far you can also get airy buds.

hi, darth, i agree the heat can cause this but placing your light too far above can do it too. the tops stretch towards it.

nutrients with ammonium and urea based nitrogen forms airier, more stretched out buds. use nitrate form only during flower.

a weak nutrient dose in flower will do it.

later

light, heat, and last but not least genes use some gravity at the end of flower and they will harden up even more

cause for airy buds

IMO the cause for airy buds has been overcrowding. My last grow was cool - about 70 to 75F but the plants were crowded.
They grew tall and stringy with airy buds.

I think it's the plant itself. I've had crops (that were all one strain) and had airy budded plants, right next to it's thick tight giant bud sister. So it may be heat, it may be poor lighting, or it may just be shit luck...
