Not sure how long to feed

Ok flower time on my master kush is 63 days. Which by my math is like 9 weeks. My question is do I use nutes for 8 weeks and flush the 9th week? Or do I use nutes 9 weeks and flush the 10th week? I want the best nugs I can grow and don’t want to harvest a week to soon or leave the flowers a week past prime.

Forget the math, plant looks like it has at least a month to go. The nice looking white pistils are the tip-off. Plant isn’t even close if those pistils are white, they have to darken first, and then still at least two weeks more.

Waiting will also allow those buds to fatten up, yours are still small and loose. The next month or so of bud development will be your payoff.


Thank you very much.
I’m about to start week 5 of my bloom nutes and wasn’t sure of anything. I thinking of doing some autos after this next crop. But first I’m going to browse the auto support for more info on them.

She doesn’t look 9 weeks into flower.
This is 62 days on 12/12 (flower)

It looks more like 21 days of flower - maybe a little less.

When did you first see pistils? This the beginning of flower. Base your flowering nutrient schedule on this date.

I started seeing them about little over 3 weeks ago. So when the hairs turn brownish the flowers are ready for harvest? This is my first bloom. I only did 2 plants so I can get an idea of what to expect when I do my six pack.

suggest trichomes are the deciding factor. 40% cloudy is a good time to harvest. if top matures first…harvest tops. wait for rest to get there.

How do you have at the top and not the bottom? Would I cut the top off like topping or just cut the blooms off? This is my first grow so I’m not clear what exactly to do.

Like stated you are WAY away from harvest. You are in week 2 or 3 of flower.

First; how about a Support Ticket so we can see what is happening along with an overall shot of the plant.

Refer to this for what flower should look like at harvest. You will notice how large and bulky the colas are. No need to measure trichomes until flower looks something like this.
