This is my first plant, it was grown from seed. The plant was in the grow stage for 3 weeks and is now on week 7 of the flower stage. The plant strain is White Widow. I have researched articles saying that when 60% of the hairs have changed to red harvest and others that say top watch the trichrome change from white to amber. I think that the buds need to tighten up more. I have included pictures. The plant is flowering with HPS so kind of red. The microscope pictures are one small bud from a cola
No pics bud
I harvest when tricombes are 60% amber 40% milky
That works for me:+1:
How do I upload the pics?
Click on upload at the bottom right open the folder that hold your pictures and click on it
I like 10 to 20% Amber on most strains but everybody has their own preference
I’m not seeing the upload button?
I see edit the post but no upload can you give me a picture of your screen, I must be missing it?
Lower right hand corner if on your phone
On my tablet it’s in tool bar above
thanks for the help
For sure I was just saying what I do and how I tell when it’s time to cut them down brother
Your correct though we all have our preferences
And need to find what works for ourselves
Sometimes it hides behind reply button ?
Some of my favorite smoke I let go as much Amber as it could ! LOL …well within reason it was a good 70% anyway, it was Cheese and I made hash out of it and it’s unbelievable …mad sleep Med ! (I still have some)
It’s hard to tell people when to harvest cuz everybody likes a little different and some strains I find are differ too
… I was just thinking about one guy I know who loves the speediest weed he can get, only sativas, that’s not for me but some people seem like it, I guess ?
So I would let they go a little longer myself but keep an eye on them they will start going amber and you’ll need to decide how much you like it
so you think 60% amber? All I see now is milky but no amber. Is there something I should add as a nutrient?
Your trychoms seem to be in the clear zone I personnaly will wait 2-3 weeks before harvesting for them to be more in the milky or amber zone , sort of speak however it depends on what you seeking for, uplifting or couchlock !
I agree with @Niala
The more amber the more of a couch lock type high which is what I like since I can’t sleep with out it lol
You may find you like your more milky
You’ll need to judge that for your self bro
I would start with a little less amber maybe 20 or 30% till you know what you like
I’m out off love @Countryboyjvd1971 so
There you go guess I’ll need to wait lol
Imao , it’s in my nature to gess
Now I’m out too
