This is my first grow (not including a few I might have done 30 years ago back when it was – I’m told – illegal). I’m in northern California and we’ve had a warm and kinda-sorta non-droughtish spring. Which is good.
I’m growing outdoors and my question has to do with my autoflower Jack Herer X AK47 X ruderalis. It’s a beauty of a plant:
11 weeks from germination, but has been at full cloudy trichomes without a hint of amber for more than 10 days now. The few remaining leaves are getting pretty dodgy, and it doesn’t seem as if the buds are swelling much (maybe they are). I can’t tell whether it’s adding new trichomes or the existing trichomes are swelling (even comparing micrographs hasn’t provided a conclusive answer).
