First time grower and I’m divided on where my plants are at in the flowering stage. I was trying to keep them in veg a little longer but they started to develop budlets about 40 days ago and I just went with it by giving them 12/12 light.
On one hand, it seems like there aren’t a ton of trichomes and most of the leaves central to the flower have clear/milky trichomes. The flowers didn’t grow as large as I expected so it seems like I should wait another week or so.
Conversely, the outer flower leaves have nothing but amber trichomes. When I look at all of the amber, I wondering if these girls are past peak and should have been harvested a week ago.
Also, some of the top flower have pistels that are about 30% brown while other seem to be about 80% brown.
These are Tahquitz OG which is 100% indica. I started them inside under T5s and then moved them to a 100% enclosed greenhouse that has an ac to keep it about 80-85 degrees. They are in Fox Farm Ocean Soil. I’m not sure how much it matters but they have had a few bouts with stress - they went into flower early due to lack of light, the greenhouse blew over once leaving them exposed some high temps for a short yet windy period.
I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on where these girls are at in their flowering stage and if they are ready to harvest.
