This is my Northern lights auto Christmas tree :) she just turned 12 weeks. I have read that this plant should be ready to harvest 10 to 12 weeks. Mine still looks like it need a lot more time?
Thanks..I've got a couple others going now with cleaned up bottoms and topped..This one above was my first, hasn't been too easy but I've learned a lot in a short time.Autos aren’t my thing but I’ve read here that just like photos how many weeks you’re told or read it should take it’s just a guideline.
Watch for amber and cloudy trichomes.
You’ll get more auto directed replies later I’m sure.
Looks good. Watch the trichomes on the buds.They start clear. You want mostly cloudy with some amber. This is why you need magnification.I've read to watch for when the pistols turn Amber..mine are clearly white still. Seems healthy still, drinks lots of water. Leaves are drying now.
IDK🤷♂️ I’m not that good. Some strains, like Sativa take 10+ weeks. I’ve read some autos can take quite long. Every grow is different is the only consistent thing. 😂Just a bit worried that 12 weeks is long for this plant.
I doubt you did worse than me. I’ve had spider mites, perfume, heat/light stress, deficiencies, over water, under water, over feed, (you getting the idea yet?) etc.Maybe it's gone through too much for my first and it is what it is.
Doesn’t have to be. Grow how you want. Finish this one off then start a new grow and journal. The farm will help as needed.It hasn't been pruned much and wasn't topped
This is great..I'll get one, my magnifier from the dollar store isn't cutting it lol..I have a spiderfarmer 3000 and these nutrients. These seeds.9 males 1 female lolUse trichromes as a guide with a jewelers loupe like @Zen_Seeker mentioned above, and also as for autos the suggested times is always just as it sounds a suggestion, I’ve had same bag of seed have plants range by 45 days apart
A good visual guide on determining harvest
What are your seeds from? What light are you using? Neuts? when did she first start showing preflowers (auto)
What do your biggest buds look like? At 12 weeks I’d imagine you’re around week 6 of flower, but I also noticed those are reg seeds not fem did you check for males?
I took the males away right away..yes about 6 weeks of floweringWhat do your biggest buds look like? At 12 weeks I’d imagine you’re around week 6 of flower, but I also noticed those are reg seeds not fem did you check for males?
