Hey guys, how long do you think I have left of flowering?

  1. Hi :)

    This is a Kera Queen Royal Diamond auto that has been flowering for about 4-5 weeks now. I have read that it should have finished already. Potentially not as much light as she'd like so made her slow.

    Indoor grow in a DIY tent with a 50W CFL and 20W red LED. (I know, I know, not enough light).

    How long do you think it has left? My trichomes are mushroom-shaped! There are some new looking pistils though, greenish. About 20% have turned orange.

    I started flushing about a week and a half ago so probably was a bit early in hindsight, didn't judge the timing too well. It's only my second grow so I'm sure I'll learn for next time!

  2. It looks like they still need quite a bit of time.
    The buds are still small & forming, the pistils haven't changed much in color. Even though you can see the mushroom shaped trichomes, if they are still clear, more time is needed.
    A jeweler's loupe will be needed to check the trichomes closely for cloudiness and amber appearance.

  3. Not ready yet buddy you've got @ least another month(3-4 weeks) hey not bad for one cfl u my get an 8th of that and I've also heard because cfls run less heat they don't burn the trichs as much(wich you will need a jewelrs loupe to check em as mentioned above by tangentweed) :) happy growing

  4. Where did you read that it would be done at 4 weeks of flower? I agree that you have 3-4 more weeks to go if you plan to take it to term.

    One of the most important factors involved in growing this plant is >>>>patience<<<<. Take no bud before it's time!

    best of luck with the finish

  6. The place I bought it from said it is sprout to harvest in 9 weeks.
  7. Had great luck with a 125 cfl , clones do well under it and very little heat emitted

    Ahhh I think what they meant was I takes 9 weeks of flowering(start counting from first pistil.) you can't include the time it takes to grow during its vegetation stage I typically run veg for 4-6 weeks then switch to flower go 8-10 weeks but I grow big not everyone does also depending on the strain :) Patience is key a photoperiod plant can take anywhere from 3-5 months autos run a shorter lifespan than that not trying to discourage you but u also will have to account for drying time, curing, it's quite the process to go from seed to good tasting fruit there's a ton of fantastic threads on this site full of info. Happy Growing!

    I'll add a link to a helpful site I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post link or not anyways it gives you a general idea about cannabis growing aswell as the life cycle of a cannabis plant personal favorite of mine

  10. Thanks for your help! I actually tried a photoperiod for my first grow (this one is only my second) and vegged it for way too long, a couple of months at least, it was flowering so slowly with not enough light for such a big plant so I had to bin it. Proper sad. So I bought an auto seed instead. I'm learning lol

    I'll have a read of the links you sent
