I see lots of human or dog hair stuck to the buds. But no amber tricombes 🤣

Depending on what you like. From what I can see, most are milky, some clear stupl and no amber. I flush when they are like 95% milky so by the time it's done there are just a few amber. Most people wait till they are amber.

Tip: use your phone camera, lots of light, even turn the flash on. Take a picture close up of your bud, not zoomed in, just get the camera as close as it will focus and take a picture. Then view the picture and zoom in like you do with porn 🤣

Seriously though, that's all I use.

If it was me I would flush it.

If you like a wakeful high, you want mostly frosty very little amber. Like it is now.

But if you like a heavier, downer high you want more amber, watch it for a week or two and when it's about half amber, start flushing.

Thanks mate, last question how much time you recomand to flush ?

Standard flush is 1 week or 5 days.
If you were not heavy in nutrients, you could get away with 3 or 4 days.

Looking nice so far! I think harvest timing is all preference. If you want that heavy high feeling, wait for the amber tips to come through. If you like something lighter, once the tips are all milky, take her down.

Imo most everyone now of days takes them too early or checks trichomes from the wrong part of the plant.
Most experienced growers do not even use a loop because they can look at the bud and know. Even at that there is no point in looking at trichomes until the plant is mature. This plant shown is not mature yet. New pistil growth indicates the buds are still maturing and swelling.

Most are scared that the plant will get over ripe and that is hard to achieve actually.

It you dont believe me ...take some now off the plant and leave the rest til it's actually done. Cure both properly and do a side by side smoke test.

Alright so where you recomand to check to trichomes, and how much time i need to w8 ? and should i keep feeding her in this period time or just water for now?.

You check the trichs on the pistils not the sugar leaves. That said, is the plant still taking up water and growing or has it peaked? She looks nice and potent but if you see new growth instead of yellowing let it run a little longer to add weight.

Trichomes should be checked from the calyx itself not the sugar leaves like so many new growers do. Sugar leaves mature much sooner then the actual calyx itself.
Buds actually can gain up to 25% of their total weight in the last 2 weeks of flower.
I would say 2 weeks left.
As far as feeding and flushing and all that .... it's up to you and what you believe. I think flushing is an absolute myth personally but to each their own.
I feed til the end.... but that is just me. (And no I really cant tell the difference between flushed buds from my buddies and mine)

I prefer to take a general consensus of tricombes. I'll look at 4 or 5 different parts of the plant. That why I said " the majority of the tricombs". I'm talking about the plant average.

No reason to even do that tho if the bud is still growing and pushing fresh white pistils. The only time this doesnt apply is to sativas.

The whole checking trichomes is just a mute point anymore anyways. Have read several studies now saying thc is peak when trichomes are clear. So around week 4 through 6 is the best time to take them? That is total b.s.
Put the scissors down and dont take the plant until it is ripe.... (and ripeness should be based on more then just trichomes that are constantly being made and dying) this is why many of us use the "by the look of it method" when it swells and pistils have died and receded. If you look at the trichomes at that point ...boom you are in the window of perfect ripeness.

Never heard that before. Everything I've ever read about it says thc degrades when the tricombes turn amber. And the point they are the most potent is when they are milky.

Regardless, the majority of growers go by tricombes. I have for 20+ years. I dont want amber tricombes. I dont give a fuck what the rest of the plant is doing. I like my smoke the way I like my smoke. By letting it go as long as you say, the tricombes would be all amber. I dont want to spend months growing, only to end up with something I dont like to smoke.

If it works for you, fine. But your method leaves no room for preference. A very poor method to tell people when they asks you about it.

Not even a little true. If you are looking at the wrong part of the plant then yes they will be all amber (like on the sugar leaves)

If you are looking at the calyx itself like you are suppose to then you will be around 5% or less amber with the rest milky

Telling someone to cut a plant too soon is a poor method... but hey if you want to cut yours prematurely go for it dude.

Anyone can test out the theory by harvesting some buds when you say they are ready and actually waiting til they are ripe and doing a side by side. The ones that are ripe will always blow the premature out of the water.

As if I havent in 20 years of growing let a plant go too long. I have. If the plant is still growing lots of tricombes are going to be clear. If you have a lot of clear tricombes, obviously the plant is not done. If however it is like I said it is, there will be little to zero clear tricombes. From there you get to actually choose if you want a uplifting energetic type stone, or a heavy sleepy type stone. I prefer a more wakeful stone, so I can still do shit. At least stay motivated to do shit 🤣

Anyways, it's nice to have the choice. Who here told him to cut it down early?
Some said to start fishing now, some said wait a week or two. I actually said both, and explained my answer. Gave him the information on milky vrs amber trics, told him what I prefer.... come on man. You like it the way you like it. I'm happy for you. But to tell people they are doing it wrong when they evidently arent... SMH...

Anyways, I dont care to argue the point anymore. I dont see this going anywhere.
