Hi I'm growing some
Blue cheese
Gorilla zkittlez
Sanfransico sour dough

About 3 and half weeks into flower would anyone do anything to these or just let them finish through now

The pics with all the colas is an auto and I think it's nearly there what do you guys think? About 30 percent pistols are brown and there's a few amber trichomes.

Thanks

Congrats on grow, looks good. Autos looking chunky but if at 3.5 weeks of flower I would read what breeder has as flower time and try not go below that. I do go by trichomes and other things and amber a good sign but there is alot to say on trichome Color as major indicator of ripeness. (See frenchie cannoli videos/articles on this).

I go by the tip of add one additional week to when you think there are done, because most newbies just cannot wait to harvest and do so too early.

Only other thing I would suggest is defoliate. Your just little over day 21 defoliation so that would be my recommendation. Remove all leafs blocking bud sites at the very least and if like me I do more than that but maybe start with some, better than none.

For next grow pay attention to your bottom buds this grow. See if your bottom buds are larf/airy , probably will be. If so may want to lollipop a bit on next grows , whether your topping /lst or not you may need to get rid of bottom buds/leaves to move that energy to producing better buds higher up where getting more light.

Hi thanks for all the info sorry the auto is day 63 . Barneys farm gorilla zkittles says 75 days. With regards to defoliation how much would you strip back and big fan leaves small ones? I done a bit of defoliation and did a little bit of lollypop was prob to worried incase I killed by taking to much off thanks for your info

Better to show. I included a picture of 4 plants. 2 in front are white widow and super silver haze, they are done the same style of topping, my version of scrog and lollipoping. The one in back right blueberry xx same thing just bigger and one in far left just crazy LST to see how far I could bend/contort. Do what your comfortable with. The plants looks awesome.

On harvest. Sounds like you still have some time. There are signs other than trichomes, brown hairs. The plant will start turning its fall colors more(not always), they will finally stop drinking water when really really done from my experience. They have amber trichomes looking at buds only not sugar leaves, ratio/percentage whatever you like. On the second pic you can see blueberry xx is ready to come done, end of week.

READ THIS ARTICLE: but he has lot more on this , figure this is good start.

Hi do another 5 days passed I'm now on day 70 and the breeder recommends 75 days seed to harvest Barney's farm gorilla zkittles auto. I'm growing in soil and the humidity is around 45-55% but the buds feel a little dry on the tops and stickier at the bottom. I was on a 20/4 but gone down to 17/7 as I thought it might be to much light ?? The temp is 26c during lights on and 16c lights off. Im in no rush to harvest but I don't want to do it to soon and I don't want to do it to late? 20-30% of pistols are amber and trichomes are cloudy few amber. Just worried about the top buds being dry. I have been flushing with canna flush for about 6 days and been using about 2.5 litres with about 10% run off. I will upload latest vid to see if anyone knows as I'm a newbie. Sorry to keep posting just don't want my time and efforts to be wasted I would rather carry buying off someone then ruin it. Thanks

1 blueberry is in the tent with other one going in shortly.

Hopefully other can provide input. Your humidity is good , would not go higher because of your top buds seem dry imo. Backing off light is good, you can even do 12/12 right. But overall from what your saying don't think you will ruin either way. Thinking you should probably go another week but if you where to say my plants are dying at 70 days , what should I do. Everyone would say harvest your bud save it. Why because it will be good bud presumably and overall it's done. It a matter of preference at a certain point.

Thanks for the reply I was thinking to harvest a week today. Do you mean feed for another week then flush or harvest in a week?

Is the top of cola normally half dry?

Your plant look awesome! And thanks for all your help and advice👍🏻I was thinking to do blueberry next can you recommend one?

I meant harvest in a week. Sounds like your flushing and getting ready so go the full 75 days or so.

My top buds get a little dryer than bottom buds sometimes. Not sure if normal but I have that as well, they get the most intense direct light so not surprising for me. If too bad on my grow I would back lights off. When I put in tent to dry it loses that dryness for me. May sound counter intuitive but when done right that moisture will balance out on your buds.

The blueberry xx fast fem (not auto) I have is from seedsman. I like it, I recommend for the fact that mine has been a beast, grows like a champ even when I screw up it never dies and good bud.
