I hope I harvested at the correct time?




Blueberry Autoflower first popped out 5/22 to 5/25.
These ladies were at 8 weeks 3 ft tall. The first of 4 plants but These looked like they were done. Planted in peat pots that did as advertised roots went through and did great. Soil was Fox Farm ocean forest and Pete’s Sea and farm. Drip watered 2 feed hoses each plant about 6 in away 12 min a day changed to 15 min a day. I have well water so no problems with ph. Stigmas changed to mostly dark so figured time is correct. First time growing and so far happy. Plant is stinky good. Curing inside cool humidity around 50% hope good luck continues.

Hard to tell from the pics.your trichomes should be 100% cloudy to a percentage of amber. The amber is a a preference and used to gauge the buzz. Check the buds and not the leaves. I go to 15-20% amber on mine for a functional buzz without couch lock :love_you_gesture:

Don’t have magnifier…yet!..due jn the mail soon and I will check. When you don’t have experience can only go by what I read. Stigmas were mostly dark so harvested. Will find out in few weeks. 3 more plants with white Stigmas getting fatter.

5/22 to 7/31 is only 70 days. This does not allow much flower time. Assuming 8 weeks for flowering this allows only 14 days veg. Both day counts are on the short end. Typical auto veg time is closer to 28 days +_ and if 8 weeks is the breeders flower time, you usually safely add a week or more.
Curious to see what your other blueberries look like now.
I grew three ILGM blueberry autos. Grow days were 88 (I think I pulled it a little early) with the other two were 102 and 108 days.

I’ve actually read a lot of blueberry auto flower journals/posts and there’s a few in the bud porn section that went 15weeks easily :wink::call_me_hand:t2:Too soon too soon get ready to freak out Blair Witch style… jk

Agree with @beardless and @grizZz on too soon. You might want to prepare yourself for a paranoid buzz, that typically happens on immature buds. On my auto grows I don’t count the 1st 14 days (germ and seedling time. My last auto run took 78-90 days. Not counting the germ and seedling days, I’m starting week 4 tomorrow on 4 autos and might start seeing signs of pre-flower :love_you_gesture:

Yes…I agree…too soon…I got a magnifying jewelers glass.
Some are milky most are clear. Won’t pay any attention to stigmas turning brown after this. Stigmas still white on other 3 plants so Won’t do that again. Magnifier shows. Trichomes are clear Some are milky. Very good thanks for the feedback.
The plants are outside with chicken wire cage and bird netting over the top. Plus I’m on a deck 10 ft up. Seems that insects and wildlife have ignored the plants…knock on wood!
Remaining 3 plants are 3 ft tall doing good and won’t mess with them for couple weeks looks like.
Again thanks for the feedback.

Yeah blueberry’s are stubborn. Mine have all gone 16 weeks. Even then there was very little amber.

This is the best visual guide for harvest I have found.
I share it at least once a day.

My original post from 3 weeks ago when I harvested to soon by a large amount. My 3 remaining plants are doing great I believe and nex week will be away for 3 weeks. Hopefully when I return all will be well.
The 3 are in a cage with bird netting covering this has prevented insects from getting to the plants and larger critters from getting to the plants. Drip irrigation has worked well all summer when I get back it willbe around 120 days from starting.20210819_100249|346x500

You’ve got time, those 1st pics of the Trichomes are from the leaves and they turn amber before the buds. Try and make sure you getting pics from the bud. Those are some thick swollen looking calyxes🤟

Took these pictures this morning. Images Better we’ll see what they look like in about a month.




Just put up better pictures…hope they make it we’ll see in about a month.
