Q&A with Jorge
It is the fifth week of flowering and still no actual bud formation. Can you tell me why the Bubblelicious strain looks so stringy, will I get buds, is it too early to tell?
You are a bit sketchy on information. Bubblelicious from Nirvana Seeds is an excellent strain. It is very easy to grow, but the yields are not spectacular. The couch-lock high travels quickly through the body and mind. High ratios of female seeds usually germinate within 48 hours. They grow fast and bushy when properly maintained. Are you sure you got the authentic Bubblelicious? Sometimes seeds are mislabeled. This could be the case with your genetics.
Or, the plants could have been stressed somehow by bouncing the light regimen back and forth between 12 or fewer hours of darkness and lots of light all the time. Confining plants in a dark room for a few days and placing them out in the light for longer periods could be the problem. Without more facts, as to exactly what the plants have experienced and the origin of the seeds, it is difficult to give you a more complete answer.
Give the plants a regular 12/12 day/night light regimen. Make sure their climate requirements are met and fertilize with a super bloom formula. This is about all you can do for now.
