    Hey everyone,

    Being a first time grower, many questions have come up and being only two weeks away from harvest, I guess I have one more.

    I have always read that the buds on a plant mature from the top down but on my plants, the buds on the lower area of the plants seems to be turning brown before the hairs on any of the buds on the upper area. Can someone explain this since it seems illogical.??

    I have read the same...I have also read the opposite. Under lupe the trichs on mine usually do mature from the bottom up.

    I may be getting confused between the bud growth of a single bud itself on a plant and the overall bud development on the plant. As I said, buds mature from the top down. I guess I interpreted this as the buds on the top of the plant maturing first, which is incorrect. Each bud matures, or develops from the top down but the buds on the lower portion of the plant mature first....? I think???

    So my man Brouli, what you are saying is that the individual buds mature from bottom up and the plant does the same?

    I guess that is logical when you think about the natural flow of water and nutes in the plant, as you said earlier.

    thanks again
