I’m here in Northern California, where my autoflower Jack/AK47 (sativa dominant) has been in grow for 13 weeks. Like all autoflowers, it showed buds about week 4, and so is now approaching its 10th week of flowering. It has many-many trichomes (yay!), but they don’t seem to be turning amber, at all. I don’t want to shortchange myself on trichome development by harvesting early, but I don’t want to risk it all degrading by leaving it in the pot too long.
On top of that, today I noticed that the buds have started to put out new pistils, as if the calyxes are going to start swelling again — even though there are almost no functioning major leaves left.
This is, I believe, weird. Photo below.
