Hi Sean, thanks for your comment. On paper, this hybrid really ought to be a very good resin producer, given the genetics, so I'm surprised to hear this. I think one of two things is happening here, we're either looking at a strain that does its main resin production in the second half of the flowering phase, or there's something in the growing environment that is limiting the trichome production. I have read that greenhouses reduce the amount of UV and UVA light that reaches the plants, and these are essential to increase resin production. Another important factor that can influence is the teperature, too high will reduce resin production too. High humidity will also negatively influence the quantity of trichomes. Are you growing any other varieties in the same glasshouse? If so, are they also showing low trichome production? Are all the plants of Gorilla Zkittlez showing the same or are certain phenotypes more resinous? There are so many factors that could affect resin production that it's hard to know what the cause sould be. I hope that helps, best wishes and happy growing!
