impossible to predict

it depends on the strain and the conditions you are growing in

This plant is still a while away from amber tric's! Start looking for amber tric's when almost all of the hairs have changed color.

Why not get rid of that tin foil?

Good luck

For sure dude, almost all the hairs on your plant will be orange/red before Tric's are amber. Click the link under my sig to see my girls, waiting on amber tric's too! Mine are much closer and my tric's are still mostly clear with some milky.

Your plant is going to need food for a good few weeks yet.

Good luck
