Between the Pro-Grow LED grow lights, and 3 differing spectra of CFLs, the buds are fattening up at a wonderful pace.

2 marijuana plants form dense buds early on, in the bloom stage.

This is BB #2. Her buds are about 15% smaller than BB #1’s are, but the trichome (resin) production is noticeably higher. There is still a lot of time left till the finish, and I expect much more growth prior to the last week or two.

Trichomes form in abundance on lower buds on the cola.

The undersides of the colas on BB# 2, reveal a forest of trichomes.

The hardest part I’m having now is the decision & action of trimming fan leaves from the young buds to allow more overall light in to the canopy.

Perhaps I left a too much lower growth...Oh well, If it looked dense, I left it.

Beyond the contrasts I stated earlier, both plants are for the most part, very similar in appearance to the casual looker. Their aromas are nearly identical, I really have to focus in to tell the difference. The buds are pretty shaggy, as a higher leaf to calyx ratio they appear to have, it could also just be that the calyxes have yet to swell & mature. Either way with their current trichome production, I’m not too worried.

Side by side it's hard to tell the two plant's buds apart.
