Hello all. I’m a new grower and need help with knowing when to harvest. My tree has been flowering for about four weeks and the pistils are starting to turn red. This is a fairly natural grow, nutrients were fed according to symptoms I googled when the plant looked poorly. It’s been on just water since December. It smells like a citrus-lime mix. Can anyone help me figure out when to cut them? My buds aren’t near as big as you guys post but I read that’s due to the nutrients(
@trinigrower You have a ways to go.
Lots of white hairs on her.
You will need a way to check trichomes when it gets closer
hola and welcome. with a photoperiod plant you can veg for as long as you like. this will help increase yield. as for flower, typically its a 2 month process. sometimes longer, never shorter though.
you are waiting to see fall type setting in the leaves. red hairs, lots of trichomes, and color changing leaves.
Thanks a lot. I’ll keep at it.
Below is an image of what the trichomes should look like:
Everything looks fine from here…you are well into flower, some leaves are starting to die off which is perfectly normal. You are at least from the looks of it 2 weeks away yet when 80-100% of your pistols turn amber, and your trichomes are all cloudy with some (10%) amber is generally the time to harvest. Everybody has their favorite time…the more amber the more “couch lock lazy” type of stone, with none amber and mostly opaque white with some still clear you get more of a “head high” up stone. but usually not as strong or long lasting. and then there is everything in-between.
Plants look great!! Great to see another new grower!! People here are great as you can see, they make us newbies pretty successful right our of the gate…lol.
Welcome and good luck with your gals!!!
Ultimate reaper lol sup bruh
Welcome @trinigrower looks good what is it?
Nada my freind…watching the Steelers fall apart, you?
Wow…painful to watch
Gonna order some seeds Bbiab
Never knew how exciting ordering SEEDS can be until I started this……
Don’t know the strain. We don’t have much info on different strains here yet. I know it’s local, that’s about it.
Thanks for the info!! I read that I could cut the fan leaves to get the buds more sun and air (hope that’s correct) I thought the leaves were a mold or calcium deficiency (internet again). I gave it a half and half mix of water and milk (guess where I read that). So you think I don’t have to worry about the leaves and I’m close to harvest? Most of the bud sites are turning Amber and a few of them are turning brown. Really glad to have found this forum.
Can u post a pic of the buds so we can see ths brown spots and a pic of the whole plant. Natural lighting or just camera flash so all correct colors show. Will help alot to see the pics
In the first cpl pics there is a dead leaf on the bud. Pluck that leaf out so it dont start rotting anything being a dead leaf other than they r growing and look of nice color. Good job
Thanks. So I remove all the dying leaves? There’s quite a few more.
Yes i would. If u touch the leaf with slight pressure and it comes off ok if u have to do any force to get it off leave it. But if it is all brown and dead yank it. It will start to rot and nold and thats not good for the bud.
