Thoughts on how long I have left? I’m think 2 weeks… maybe 3?
Generally have a couple of weeks after the flowers fatten up and pistils brown and fall back to the flowers. You have a good bit longer than 2 - 3 weeks to wait.
Thank you. And waaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!
It’ll be worth the wait, and you’ll enjoy watching those flowers fatten up. I’m guessing you have 4 to 5 weeks, but all strains and even individual plants, can mature differently.
Same thing I was thinking.
Harvest early and you never enjoy the taste and pleasure of ripe fruit. Wait too long and it’s rotten fruit, which BTW, brings us back to green bananas vs. black bananas, windows are everything in life, miss the window and we hit the wall!
I’m guessing about 1,008 full time hours, or 504 dark cycle hours, or about 6 weeks, depending on how intensive your care is, or is not. Some people I wouldn’t give 48 hours, only because that’s about how long they last without any care.
A $20 dollar USB microscope is a necessity unless you have Superman X ray vision. You’ll get a good closeup on the amount of amber resin vs. milky and clear.
Here’s the one I have and I’m happy with it, I also use a jeweler’s loupe. Gotta keep your eye on things, spot trouble before it incubates.
Yeah I have a usb microscope, clip lens for camera and loupe. So cool for close ups. They all clear still not milky at all. I was more wondering From the hairs that were curling and turning brown.
Consensus. 4-6 more weeks.
It’s been 5 since flip.
Id say more like 5 weeks roughly. Looks like your about week 4-5 to me? Looking good though!
@imSICKkid what’s your best guess for how much longer? I see lots of milky but only 1 or two amber. I don’t want sleep medicine but I like a bit of a body buzz.
Once those calyx stop coming out, and you are satisfied with trichomes… cut er doon. They look ready except for the white freshies popping out?
I see white pistils but they’re only towards the tops. So if you like the trichomes where they are I’d chop em now.
This is my very first harvest. So I’m balancing eagerness with wanting quality.
Thanks as always for your advice!
