This beautiful lady here started flowering approximately Nov 1st today is 6 weeks should I start to flush? I have them in happy frog and been using FF nutes. It’s hard being patient but super excited watching them fatten up!!
Based on the pic I believe you still have a way to go. Possibly 3 weeks or so. Over the next couple of weeks you’ll see them really start to fatten up and get frosty. If you get a chance try to take a pic in natural light or just with flash from camera. Flushing with water only really doesn’t remove anything from the buds. Personally I think you should keep feeding up to the last week or so. Others may disagree with that, but I don’t believe there’s any advantage to starving your girls the last couple of weeks. You should base your harvest time by trichome color, not by a generic timetable put out by seed company.
Thanks @Bulldognuts. I was thinking the same thing Says on FF feeding schedule to repeat the last week until harvest so I think that’s what Imma do. I have a jewelers loupe I use to look at trics
I agree, a few more weeks and they will pack on a lot of weight.
@Coen3440 @Bulldognuts still think more than a week??
Lots of clear trichomes there and pistils are still mostly white. So I’d say you probably have longer than a week. But you’re getting close, try to start checking the trichomes regularly.
Thank you I will It’s hard being patient but what’s another week. I started her Oct 5th. This will be my first smokable harvest. I plan on feeding nothing but ph water at 6.3 until I see amber and then give them 48 hours of complete darkness and cut them at the base while still dark. Sound right @Bulldognuts ?? Any suggestions?? Thanks for your help as well greatly appreciated
The best I have ever grown was some lemon g outdoor that we never had time to fertilize so it only got watered and that’s it like 4 times all year, they were not huge, but such clean smoke. It never hurts to flush them out more.
Minimum of 2 week patience
@Cdon007 that plant is in flower for sure.
All of those clumps of white are the flowers.
@Cdon007 if you are 5 weeks from seed, or even from sprouts, I would say your plants are looking really good. I have a grow journal that I post pics of mine every few days, with how many days in they are take a look.
That sounds about right, just be conscious of how much amber you have. If you want a good couch lock effect then go up to about what you estimate as being 20% amber. I will usually chop a indica dominant plant when they are at 100% cloudy. But I don’t want something that will make me pass out on the couch
Yeah. My bad im in the 7th week of flower now. I meant. I didn’t know exactly when to consider them in flower, when they first started to flower.
It’s better to go by the plant than the breeders numbers, but the really pack on a lot of weight the last few weeks.
They look really good though. It prob wouldn’t be a bad time to start flushing them.
