Ok so im pheno Hunting and I think my plants are stalled. This strains are supposed to be ready in 9-10 weeks and I'm on week 14 already.

The leaves are very Yellow, because I thought the plants were supposed to be ready at week 10 i started flushing from week 8 until week 11. I just then realized the plants need longer to finish and then I started feeding them again. I've checked for trichomes and it's like 50 are clear and 50 are milky. No brown trichomes. Some pistills on some strains are still white.

I've done a lot of different stuff that i think a lot of growers don't do and may find weird, like small pots and not PHing my water, but I'm pretty sure you can grow good weed this way because I've seen some threads. i just have to dial in with this way of growing, i'm trying to find out whats the cause of my plants not wanting to finish.

I'm growing in a 5x5 foot tent

2x 600w Lamps

Sog grow in 1gallon pots
Biobizz nutes (the complete line) no pH water

I follow the vpd chart and the temperatures and RH were more stable throughout this grow

I water when I see the plants are asking for water( i think this was a big mistake ) and I also think I've been watering too much water

There were a couple of times where I opened the tent and all the leaves were down like the plant was about to die, but after watering they came back.

i also have some plants in week 5 in this same tent that are going well, well at least yet.. don't mind these, my concern is the more advanced ones

You can't go by when the breeder says they're "supposed to finish " because so many factors have an effect on that. 10 weeks isn't very long. Just wondering, are those brown clumps dead leaves, or bud rot? Need a close up... you should remove the dead crap for cleanliness sake.

clean the dead leaves off and like some of the others members mentioned. Take some close up pictures of the flowers and some leaves so we can see where you are at.

Take a clear close up of the spots in question and of some buds.
Some closeups on buds of different plants would help.

I took some photos of different plants, they're different phenos.

On the day I took the other photos i watered the plants and because they were so yellow I gave them too much nutes, the plants are looking a bit burnt ☹️😔 what a stupid thing it was!

Anyways here are the pictures:

Looks like there almost done, I have went 24 hr dark before to help put em over the the edge. You could just ride it out they will be done soon either way.
You could also harvest right now in my opinion It will be nice mellow up high.

Looks like too much light and too much feed (especially nitrogen) throughout the later weeks of flower.

14 weeks from flip or budset?

How can I know when they're really done besides pistils?

Ok - pistils will turn from white to brown. They will go from straight to shriveled. They will no longer be pointy but hugging the bud. Bud will visually change complexion.

Trichomes will start swelling those clear heads and turning cloudy. A magnification device is very useful. You want to find a ratio of clear/cloudy/amber trichs that gives you the best weed for your tastes. Some people like mostly cloudy and some clear, some people like 25% amber with their cloudy.

If you know your not over or under watering and your PH levels are good. I would start with it most likely being a Magnesium Deficiency, Epsom Salt is 100% Magnesium! Get some plain, unscented Epsom Salt. Use 3/4 Tablespoon to a gallon of water when you water your plants! You can safely do this after your plants are a foot tall, do not (I repeat DO NOT) feed them Epsom Salt during the first 2 weeks of flowering as this tends to decrease bud growth. Outside the 2 weeks after switching to flower it is safe to resume giving them Epsom. Magnesium encourages the uptake of essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which will aid in a healthy plant.

I used calmag throughout this grow, 1x a week
