Growers use the term albino bud to refer to bud that’s totally white. However, what many growers call “Albino Bud” is actually normal bud that has been ” light bleached”. It’s easy to spot light-bleached bud because the albino-looking
spotsare always near the top of the plant where the light is most intense. If the white spots aren’t at the top of the plant, you might be looking at a true albino plant or at least a plant with albino characteristics.
