i saw some of your pictures and they are some kind of fine, sure hope i can do half that good. i need to get help in when to do each step and the next step is determined by the trichomes and when they go from clear to partly milky i turn the lights off for 2 days, then put in my ??? it’s full of holes has 5 i think compartments and cure and dry or do you think i need to hang them upside down until the branches snap, then dry them, and should i trim before the drying? The microscope is supposed to arrive May 15 in the meantime i’ll do my best with phone camera.

@Alfred69. Thank you kind sir. Appreciate the positive vibes. :+1:
You’ve still got at least a few weeks before you’re ready to look at the trichomes from what I can see.
When the trics turn from MILKY to Amber is when you want to place them in the dark.
That’s when the thc is at its highest concentrations.
The pistils will continue to darken with new ones coming out as the buds swell. They will get quite a bit bigger. :wink:
Gotta run for now but I’ll check back in later :wink:
Remember. :wink:. Patience. :grin::+1::v:

I only use LED lights I haven’t use HPS lights but with LEDs I’ve use 1000 watt from seed to harvest and I just the height accordingly usually the owners manual would help you out

Maybe we were poorer than i thought cause we didn’t have encyclopedias but we did have a party line phone

YELLOW LEAVES ON AUTOFLOWER!!!
Help! My autoflower is at about 7-8 weeks since I bought it and the leaves look terrible. Should I trim it now? Does it need nutrients?

Thanks!

Bought it? Was it a plant when you got it?

Looking like she’s getting close to finished. The yellowing happens.

Yes, it was about 10"-12" tall when I got it a little over a month ago.

Okay 7 to 8 weeks plus maybe 3 before you got her, so that makes sense 10 or 11 she may just loosing leafs she’s done, could not see buds well enough to be certain. But all looks good man.

Awesome, great news! I’ll hold out another week or so as long as the buds look healthy.

Thanks!
