I am nearing harvest with a Blue Dream photo using seeds from ILGM. Time on this site says 8-10 weeks in flower, and I will be 10 weeks tomorrow…so I am right on time. Trichs are cloudy and 20% amber. Time to chop.
I base my harvest on the trichomes, not the leaves, but my question is about leaf discoloration near harvest.
This is the first BD I have grown, and the amount of yellowing on the leaves looks like a fall scene in the mountains. Most of the small fan leaves and sugar leaves on the colas are quite yellow, and some are brown tipped and a few are even semi-crispy on the tips. She look perfectly fine, but I have not seen other strains get this yellow at harvest time.
Is this leaf yellowing (nutes being depleted end of life) based on the BD genetics and this particular strain? Other photos I grew recently such as White Widow and Northern Lights may have looked a tinge yellow but nothing like this. Doesn’t change my harvest plans - just curious??
