    how can i get this effect with my buds?
    is it a water thing or fert thing?

    well your buds wont get very hard, thats a compression thing.. i assume your plants are 100% femme right? now DONT quote me on this one (ask someone with a bit more exp here) but the way ive always got super sticky buds is by waiting longer to harvest.. like mid december, after we've had a couple good cold snaps.. it seems to break those glands inside and it coats the outside (thats my theory at least) but i live in florida, so it might be a completley different story in your region

    i live in ny, and i half way through september my buds were so sticky that when you break it up it literally pulled apart and stuck to your fingers also if you aqueezed your thumb and index finger they would stick for a while lol. so cool lol:Rasta:

    the amount of resin you get depends on the strain of weed you grow they are all differant

    The amount of resin(stickiness) the plant makes is based ultimately on genetics and your ability to unlock the plant's full potential. You want sticky hard buds? Look for genetics that have potent hard buds.

    This depends on your preference. Do you like to be mental stoned or body stoned. If you harvest earlier (mostly clear/few milky) you'll have a more speedy head high. If you harvest on-time you'll get it when its mostly milky trichomes. This is the best balance of bodyhead highs and is also the longest lasting. If you wait another week, the plant will keep putting on weight but the high will degrade into a more lethargic/couchlock stone(50%+ amber). IMO you should try to get them when the most trichomes are milky. You'll need a microscope to see the little glands.
    You can effect the high by when you harvest but it mainly depends on genetics... If you grow a pure sativa it can't be a couchlock stone just like a pure indica won't be a speeedy, trippy high. But you can make a sativa slightly more relaxing by giving it an extra week.

    Hard, compact, dense nugs... try a kush and pretty much any other indica strain.
    You want sticky icky buds? Like a lot have said here, it's strain dependent, but most strains will have at least some stickyness, especially right after harvesting. After it is dried and cured well it tends to lose a bit of the stickyness, although it does not lose its potency :).

    And by the way, 420check420, resin heads breaking isn't exactly a good thing. It's better to try your best to keep them intact.
     
  13. Last grow, I flowered my White Widows a little over 10 weeks and they were very sticky. I would bring some to my bro in aluminum foil and we would have to peel it off. It was by far the stickiest weed I ever smoked and it was home grown. :D
