  1. how many days usually?
     
  2. A little every day, just watch carefully.

    -C
     
  3. impossible to predict

    it depends on the strain and the conditions you are growing in
     
  4. oh ok.. well my plant has been flowering for a month and a week about.. maybe a little more.. and the crystals look milky which is what i want.. should i harvest?
     
  5. how are you checking the trichomes?
     
  6. for my strain i thought they would slowly change but for the most part it was a drastic change overnight.
     
  7. with a 30x portable microscope. i tried to take some pics.. here.. idk if they are any use.

  8. keep going for sure.

  10. 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
     
  11. so you think a few weeks?

    i havnt taken it down because its a pain in the ass.. i will after this grow.
     
  12. Longer than a few weeks dude, don't start to flush yet
     
  13. okay so i should start back to ferting?
     
  14. 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
     
  15. okay thank you!
     
  16. Usual Suspect: I don't see a link under your sig...
